Ingredients (serves 4)
2 x 250g packets haloumi cheese
1 bunch Dutch carrots, peeled, trimmed
150g green beans, trimmed
2 small zucchini, thickly sliced
1 red capsicum, cut into 2cm pieces
1 red onion, halved, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 eggplant, cut into 2cm pieces
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup plain flour
crusty bread and lemon wedges, to serve
2 tablespoons mint leaves, finely chopped
1/2 lemon, rind finely grated
Make mint marinade: Combine all ingredients in a ceramic dish.
Slice each block of haloumi lengthways into 6 pieces. Add haloumi to marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight (see note).
Preheat oven to 200°C. Combine carrots, beans, zucchini, capsicum, onion, garlic and eggplant in a roasting pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil. Season with pepper. Roast for 20 minutes or until light golden and tender.
Meanwhile, place flour on a plate. Remove haloumi from marinade, allowing some of the mint to remain on the cheese. Press 1 side of haloumi into flour to coat. Turn over and repeat. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook haloumi, in batches, for 4 minutes on each side or until light golden.
Serve with roasted vegetables, crusty bread and lemon wedges.
Marinating haloumi overnight will tenderise the cheese and reduce the salty flavour.
You'll need to start this 1 day ahead.
