The recent harsh weather conditions have impacted the zucchini grown by our farmers. The quality and freshness is still the same, but they may be a little smaller than usual.

chermoula spice blend(ContainsSulphites)
vegetable stock powder
Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Boil the kettle. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Cut the red onion into thick wedges. Cut the carrot into bite-sized chunks. Cut the beetroot into small cubes. Place the veggies on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle over the chermoula spice blend and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, spread in a single layer and roast until tender, 25-30 minutes.
TIP: If your oven tray is crowded, divide the veggies between two trays.
TIP: Beetroot stays firm when cooked. It's done when you can pierce it with a fork.
Cut the haloumi into 1cm-thick slices.
In a large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Toast the pearl couscous, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1-2 minutes. Half-fill the saucepan with boiling water, then add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, until tender, 10-12 minutes. Drain and rinse, then transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and stir through the vegetable stock powder.
When the veggies have 10 minutes remaining, wash out the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Pat the haloumi dry with paper towel. When the oil is hot, cook the haloumi until golden brown, 2 minutes each side. Reduce the heat to medium, then add the honey. Cook, turning the haloumi to coat, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
Gently stir the roasted veggies through the couscous.
Divide the roast veggie pearl couscous between plates. Top with the honey-glazed haloumi. Serve with a dollop of the Greek-style yoghurt.
