Spiced Halloumi over Warm Quinoa-Kale Salad

with Orange Vinaigrette & Toasted Walnuts

Cooking time

15 minutes




940 /serving

Halloumi may just be king among cheeses—it’s über-savoury, tastes good with just about everything and is sturdy enough to act as a very welcome meat replacement in just about any dish we can think of. Tonight, you’ll be frying it with a blend of herbs and walnuts and using it to bulk out a super-fresh and summery kale salad. The kale is seasoned with a sweet and savoury combination of freshly squeezed orange juice, whole grain mustard, white wine vinegar and a dash of honey. Mix through some quinoa for protein and texture, tangy sundried tomatoes and colourful julienned beets to round it all out.

Make the salad
In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, mustard, honey and vinegar with 3 tbsp of olive oil (double for 4 portions). Season with ½ of the spice blend and S&P. Add ½ the vinaigrette to a large bowl and combine with the kale; massage the kale, 1 to 2 minutes, until softened.

Toast the walnuts & cook the halloumi
Heat a large pan on medium-high. Add the walnuts and ½ the remaining spice blend. Add a drizzle of oil and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until evenly browned. Transfer to a small bowl. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil. Season the halloumi with as much of the remaining spice blend as you’d like and cook, 1 to 2 minutes each side, until golden brown.

Heat the quinoa
Using a knife, poke a small hole in the bag of quinoa; microwave, 1 to 1.5 minutes, until warm. Transfer to the bowl with the kale. Add the beets, sundried tomatoes (roughly chop before adding) and ¾ the parsley; toss to combine. Add as much of the remaining vinaigrette as you’d like and toss to combine; season with S&P.
