Mediterranean halloumi Bake, packed with turmeric and smoked paprika.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 7 mins
Cook time:25 mins

– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 onion, finely chopped
– 2 cloves garlic, chopped
– 2 courgettes, diced
– 15 cherry tomatoes, quartered
– 3 tablespoons tomato puree
– 1 tablespoon turmeric
– 1 tablespoon cumin
– 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
– 1 small fresh chilli, finely chopped and de-seeded

How to make it..

Preheat your oven to 220°C in grill mode. Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof, medium-large pan and sauté the onions for two minutes.

Add the garlic and cook for another minute, now add the courgettes, tomatoes, tomato puree and spices, cover with a lid and simmer for about 20 minutes. The tomatoes and courgettes will release water and turn into a sauce. In case they don’t release enough juice, you can add a little bit of water or passata to adjust the consistency to your liking.

Cover the dish with the halloumi slices and place it under the grill until the halloumi slices turn golden brown.

Sprinkle with fresh basil and enjoy.
