Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 2 Courgettes chopped
  • 6 Medium Tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 tbsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Chilli Flakes (adjust according to how spicy you like your food, it will still taste great without!)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 200 g Halloumi sliced
  • Handful Fresh Basil chopped

Instructions

  • Start by heating the oil in a frying pan which you can also use under the grill over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry for a few minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a little longer.
  • Once the onion and garlic has softened add the tomatoes and courgettes followed by the tomato puree and all the spices along with a good sprinkling of salt and pepper. Cook over a medium heat for 20 minutes until everything is softened and the tomatoes have released their liquid.
  • Heat the grill to medium high heat. Remove the pan from the heat and place the slices of halloumi across the top of the vegetables. Place under the grill for a few minutes until the cheese has browned. Sprinkle with basil before serving.
