If any vegetable could solve all my problems I imagine it would be broccoli...or peas, I do love a good bowls of peas, frozen or fresh, straight out the pod (although I'm usually too lazy for that). That makes it sounds like I like peas more than broccoli which is not true, I'd say they were on an even playing field but we're not actually here to talk about peas. But lack of sleep...broccoli can fix that right? I guess I'll let you know after I've devoured this. I vaguely and I mean vaguely got this idea for this from a sprout dish my mum makes for Christmas, I mean, the only ingredient that's actually the same is onions but it was still the spark. The longer I spent thinking about this the more things I added to it, although it's still pretty simple and has only a few ingredients so when you’re too tired or busy you can just throw it in the pan and have a healthy meal at the end of it which is definitely what I was in need of last week. I guess it’s debatable whether chorizo is healthy but broccoli is a super food so that pretty much doubles itself in health points so it kind of evens itself out. The halloumi was the last edition and only from this meal have I actually reveled in the joy that is grilled halloumi. My mum gave it to me years ago and all I could say was it was squeaky and I did not enjoy the squeakyness. I normally eat it straight out the packet but my love for halloumi has just grown to the point where I just don't care about the squeakyness anymore. Cheese is worth a little squeakyness. Medium-large head of broccoli
Small-medium brown onion
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
Halloumi, sliced (150g)
Chop the broccoli into small florets and place in a steamer, cook until the florets are soft but still slightly firm, this should take about 10 minutes.
While the broccoli is steaming, heat up a frying pan and add a small amount of oil. Peel, quarter and slice the onion and slice the chorizo, add to the heated frying pan and cook on a medium heat until the chorizo is sealed then add in tomatoes. Cook until the chorizo is browned at the edges and tomatoes start to burst.
Meanwhile add the halloumi to a small, heated frying pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Once the broccoli is cooked add to the frying pan with the vegetables and toss. Serve and top with halloumi.
