Ingredients

For the quinoa:

For the dressing and salad:

For the cheese:

  • 5 oz halloumi cheese (5oz = 150g)
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Instructions

Quinoa:

  • Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions with a little salt. We find it best to use double the amount of water to quinoa, and cook until water has evaporated. Take off heat and cover with a tea towel for five minutes.

Dressing and salad:

  • In the meantime, drain and rinse the chickpeas. Give the arugula/rocket a quick wash and shake. Put them into a large bowl.
  • Mix the juice and zest of the lime with the olive oil. Add the sweet paprika.

Cheese:

  • Chop the halloumi into bite-size pieces and fry in a little oil for 2-3 minutes each side.
  • When the quinoa is ready, combine it with the chickpeas and arugula/rocket. Stir through the lime-oil mix. Serve in bowls with the halloumi on top. Enjoy!
