1 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

Now, let's get started!

Cut the halloumi into bite-sized cubes

3 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Once the pan is hot, add the halloumi cubes with a generous grind of black pepper and cook for 1-2 min or until starting to colour

4 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

While the halloumi cubes are cooking, slice the spring onion[s] roughly

Once the halloumi is starting to colour, add the sliced spring onions with the roasted garlic paste, baharat and dried chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 1 min further or until fragrant

5 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

Once fragrant, add the spinach and cook, covered, for a further 30 secs or until the spinach has wilted

Once wilted, add the steamed white basmati rice with the sultanas and cook for a further 2 min or until the rice is piping hot

6 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

Meanwhile, chop the dill roughly, including the stalks

7 2329 - 10-Min Fruity Halloumi & Spinach Pilaf

Once done, add the juice of the lemon[s] and give everything a good mix up – this is your fruity halloumi & spinach pilaf
