Ingredients

  • 100g (4oz) couscous
  • 300ml (1/2 pint) hot vegetable stock
  • 25g (1oz) butter
  • 1 bunch spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium courgette, finely chopped
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 large red peppers, halved and deseeded
  • 2 large yellow peppers, halved and deseeded
  • 250g (9oz) pack Halloumi cheese, sliced
  • Mixed salad leaves, to serve
  • 2 tbsp Rowse Greek honey
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. 1. Put the couscous into a bowl and add the hot vegetable stock. Leave it to soak and swell for about 10 minutes.

  2. 2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the spring onions and courgette for 6-8 minutes until soft and golden. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 1 minute, then remove from the heat.

  3. 3. Fluff up the couscous with a fork and add the spring onion mixture. Season.

  4. 4. Preheat the grill. Arrange the pepper halves under the grill, cut sides down. Grill them for 4-5 minutes until just beginning to char slightly. Turn them over and fill them with the couscous mixture, then top them with slices of Halloumi cheese. Grill for another 4-5 minutes, until the cheese browns.

  5. 5. Meanwhile, make the dressing by mixing together the honey, olive oil, vinegar, mustard, thyme leaves and seasoning.

  6. 6. Serve the peppers with the salad leaves, spooning the dressing over them.

  7. Tips: Halloumi cheese must be cooked to bring out its flavour – it can be grilled, dry-fried in a non-stick frying pan or cooked in a char-grill pan.
