This plant-based dinner is one of our favourite things to make—it’s hearty and loaded with bright flavours and comforting textures. It also keeps amazingly as leftovers, so consider doubling up on your order and saving some for tomorrow’s lunch! You’ll roast carrots in a honey-za’atar mixture and serve them alongside golden, pan-fried halloumi and spiced kale over pearl couscous.

Roast the carrots
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and halve the carrots lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss the carrots with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the za’atar and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer. Roast in the oven, flipping halfway through, 17 to 20 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and drizzle with ½ the honey. Set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the couscous
While the carrots roast, add the couscous to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Cook, 8 to 12 minutes, until tender. Thoroughly drain the couscous, rinse in cold water and transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with oil; season with all but a pinch of the remaining za’atar and S&P. Toss to combine. Set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the couscous cooks, cut the halloumi into ¼ inch slices. Remove the kale leaves from the stems; thinly slice the leaves into ribbons, discarding the stems. In a large bowl, combine the kale and a drizzle of olive oil; season with the remaining za’atar and S&P to taste. Using your hands, massage the kale with the oil, 1 to 2 minutes, until softened.
