Method

  1. In a mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, chilli, garlic and parsley. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

  2. Add 2 tablespoons of the dressing to another bowl, and toss in the halloumi and the spring onions. Set aside to marinate whilst you make the salad.

  3. Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions - about 12-15 minutes - and toss through the rest of the dressing whilst still warm.

  4. Blanch the Tenderstem® broccoli and soy beans (or peas) in boiling water for 3 minutes until just tender but with plenty of bite. Drain well and toss through the quinoa. Taste to check the seasoning, adding a little more salt and pepper if necessary. Set aside while you finish the kebabs.

  5. Take a wooden skewer and thread alternately with halloumi and pieces of spring onion. Heat a BBQ or griddle pan to hot and cook the kebabs for 2-3 minutes on each side until the halloumi is crisp on the outside. Serve immediately with generous helping of salad.
