Seared Halloumi & Honey-Mustard Roasted Parsnips

with Pear & Lettuce Salad

Cooking time

25 minutes




650 /serving

Get to the roots of flavour when you roast parsnips. They become candy-sweet in the oven, a quality that you’ll tease out even more with a honey-mustard drizzle as they finish cooking. Apply those same sweet and sharp flavours to the vinaigrette that you’ll use to dress a salad of lettuce and sliced pear. The final element in this meat-free feast is seared halloumi cheese as a warm and salty counterpoint.

Start the parsnips
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel and halve the parsnips (or quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅔ of the spices and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, flipping halfway through, 15 to 18 min., until tender.

Mise en place
While the parsnips roast, roughly chop the lettuce, discarding the root end. Core and thinly slice the pear; toss with a splash of the vinegar to prevent browning. In a small bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining ½ the honey mustard, the remaining vinegar and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spices and S&P.

Sear the halloumi
In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Rinse the halloumi and pat dry with paper towel; cut into ¼ inch slices. Sear, 1 to 2 min. per side, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.

Finish the parsnips
While the halloumi sears, combine the remaining honey mustard with ½ tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Switch the oven to broil. Remove the parsnips from the oven and drizzle with the honey mustard mixture. Toss and return to the oven to broil, 2 to 3 min., until browned. Set aside.
