I’ve been thinking about this a quick family tea for a few weeks. I plan on making it, then for some reason everyone’s plans change, people are in, out, who knows where, and I end up not cooking or doing something a bit boring like pizza. Hardly the most original or inspiring snack ever invented but very tasty all the same. The sweetness of the sweet potato works really well with the saltiness of the halloumi and the peppery rocket. I also added a generous smear of mayonnaise and a wonderfully tangy chili and ginger salsa from Daylesford Organic I was given as a late Christmas present. It would work equally as well with FoodFrom4 Chili Jam – available from me if you ask me nicely.
The quantities below made lunch for two people.
2 baps/rolls of your choice. I used wholemeal seeded baps from Waitrose
1 pack halloumi – cut into four equal portions
1 small sweet potato – peeled and cut into thinnist discs
mayonnaise or natural yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
rocket, watercress or similar
Heat the oil in a frying pan then add the sliced sweet potato and fry on both sides until soft on the inside and slightly charred on the outside.
Put the grill on and place the slices of halloumi under until browned, turn and repeat until the otehr side is brown too.
Split the baps. Place one slice of halloumi on each, then the sweet potato, then some chili jam, then the other piece of halloumi and top it off with a good handful of leaves and a dollop of mayonnaise or natural yogurt.
