Sweet Potato and Halloumi Bake

Sweet Potato and Halloumi Bake
 A yummy vegetarian bake with roasted sweet potatoes, red and yellow peppers, red onion and garlic, finished off with grilled halloumi cheese (it squeaks at you from the grill!). This really is a meal in itself but some crusty bread alongside would go down well.

  1. I am not a huge fan of sweet potato, but that looks good!

  2. I love Nigella's Sweet Potato and Halloumi Bake! Looks yummy!


  3. I think I saw her make this on tv & it looked so great

  4. I have had halloumi in Cyprus, but have never seen it here in the US, which of course doesn't mean it can't be had. This looks fab, I'm glad to see that you are getting hubby accustomed to some meatless meals, well, a bit of bacon doesn't count, right? :-)

  5. This looks great Beth, I've been wondering what to do with the Halloumi in my fridge. I even have the sweet potatoes too!

  6. I love haloumi, this looks really good. I agree there's nothing wrong with having a meatless meal.

  7. What a nice combination of flavours. I have been on the lookout for new ways of enjoying halloumi.
