Step 2

While the onion softens, you can mix up your coriander/cilantro drizzle by adding the olive oil, chilli, salt and pepper to the juice of a lime. Blitz it up in a nutri bullet or small blender. If you don’t have a nutri bullet – just chop the cilantro and mix it all up in a pestle and mortar or even just mix it by hand in a bowl.

Step 3

Now slice the halloumi and add it into the onion to start toasting and melting. After a few minutes, add the beans and warm through. Finally add the spinach on top and leave until it starts to wilt.​  Serve up the bean, halloumi and spinach mix and drizzle the coriander / lime dressing over the top.​

 

Recipe tips

Roll the lime back and forth against a board or worksurface with the palm of your hand to soften it up before juicing – it really helps you get more juice from the fruit!

Use any type of canned beans or change it up and try chickpeas.​

Maybe you aren’t a coriander / cilantro fan? Change it up with basil instead!
