WHB #114: Spiced chickpeas with halloumi

The 114th edition of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 ** is hosted by the inventor of this great event herself: Kalyn from Kalyn’s Kitchen. I have to admit that I passed the last 10 rounds, first I renovated the kitchen and then I had some problems. But a New Year and a new post from my new kitchen. In Northern Germany it’s grey, cold and damp and I desired for some vitamins in a winter salad. I didn’t follow the recipe below. I used 3 fresh bell peppers, roasted them under the grill and removed the skin.

1. Heat the oil in a pan, then gently fry the chilli and ginger for 1 min. Stir in chickpeas, spinach and peppers, then season. Cover, then cook gently for 3-4 mins, stirring occasionally, until the spinach has wilted and the chickpeas are warmed through.

2. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan until piping hot. Cut the halloumi into 6 slices and quickly fry for 1-2 mins each side. Stir the lemon juice into the chickpeas and divide between two plates. Top with the halloumi and serve immediately.

    Happy New Year Ulrike! I’m with you craving vegetables and winter salads. We are having the same, grey, wet weather. Now I have to go translate that bacon tart – it’s looks delicious as well!
