I grew up eating a Mediterranean style diet, full of fruits and vegetables, with chicken and lamb. I love to eat, I love to eat foods that make me feel good, healthy and happy. This dish definitely makes me happy! My favourite vegetables all combined together in one easy to cook dish, perfect as a light lunch, a starter or as a side dish to a meat dish. The cooking time for this is around 45 mins so you can get it all ready in one oven proof dish and just leave it in the oven to cook when entertaining or running around after the kids.
1 Aubergine, sliced
1 Courgette, sliced
2 White Potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 White Onion
2 Vine tomatoes, sliced
1 Handful of Cherry Tomatoes
2 Padron Peppers, deseeded and sliced
1/2 pack of Hellim/ Halloumi, chopped
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme or Fresh Thyme, finely chopped
Ground Himalayan Pink Salt & Black Pepper, to season
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
In an oven proof dish add the vegetables, either layer them or just mix them all in
Pour over the olive oil, a few tablespoons, enough to lightly cover everything
Season with a little salt, pepper & thyme
Place in the centre of the oven and bake for around 35 minutes
Add the helium/halloumi and bake for a further 5-10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and place the dish in the centre of your table with some fresh bread, greek yoghurt, hummus or tahini and enjoy with family and friends as a starter or as a side dish to your roast chicken or roast lamb.
