Wholewheat Pita Stuffed with Roasted Vegetables Accompanied by Pan Fried Halloumi

A selection of vegetables, drizzled with olive oil, seasoned with salt, black pepper and fresh herbs

When you eat a solitary meal and one sans meat, you make every effort to make it tasty, colourful and appetising.

Last weekend I felt like roasted vegetables in a pita with pan fried halloumi.

This is exactly what I had.

Nothing could be simpler than this meal.

Wash, pat dry and cut into pieces/wedges/quarters the vegetables of your choice. Place in a casserole dish. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and ground black pepper. Cover the dish and bake in preheated oven (200°C/375°F) for about 45 minutes. When the vegetables are cooked, remove the lid and grill for about 7-8 minutes.

Meanwhile, add 5ml olive oil to a non-stick pan, blot strips of halloumi cheese with kitchen towel. Place cheese in pan, turning after thirty seconds; fry the other side until brown and crisp as well.

Serve in a toasted pita bread, adding a little balsamic vinegar if desired.
