Meat Free Monday: Made Easy

The perfect quick & simple veggie meal.

This recipe is inspired by one we were sent by a friend called The Roasting Tin however we’ve tweaked it a bit and it’s the perfect lazy day quick dinner or meal prepping for lunches. It only takes 10 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to cook.

You will need:

100g Bulgar Wheat

200g Giant Couscous

500ml of Vegetable Stock

500g Halloumi cut into chunks

1 x 400g tin of chickpeas, drained & rinsed

1 large red onion sliced (or 3 small red onions quartered)

2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

2 Teaspoons of smoked paprika

A few handfuls of spinach


Preheat the oven to 180C fan | 200C.

In a bowl mix the halloumi, chickpeas & red onion with the olive oil and paprika leave for a few minutes to marinade. If you can get your hands on the La Pastora Smoked Paprika then do it because it is divine (not sponsored just bloomin’ delicious)

Tip the couscous and Bulgar wheat in a roasting tin, scatter the spinach over the top before pouring the stock over the top. Then add the halloumi mixture on top of that. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until the halloumi is golden brown. If you want to add a bit of decadence stir through some truffle oil before serving.

If spinach isn’t your favourite leafy green veg then kale or Cavolo Nero also works.

I prefer it served warm but you can pop it into Tupperware and take it to work with you and either eat cold or heat up in the microwave.

  1. This sounds delicious! Can’t wait to check the cupboard, but I think that we have everything we need to make this already…..

    1. It’s very much a store cupboard/everyday veg type recipe, apart from the halloumi possibly 🙂
