Vegetable haloumi salad

A quick and tasty lunch option to prepare for the week ahead.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • ⅔ cup quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon extra
  • 2 bunches of broccolini, cut into 5cm lengths
  • 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • ½ bunch of parsley, leaves picked
  • ½ bunch of coriander, leaves picked
  • 150g seedless purple grapes, halved
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 300g haloumi, thickly sliced


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Boil quinoa for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat one tablespoon oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook broccolini for 2-3 minutes or until tender and lightly charred. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Add quinoa, chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, spring onion, parsley, coriander and grapes.
  4. Combine lemon juice, mustard and remaining one tablespoon oil in a small bowl. Pour over salad and toss to coat.
  5. Return pan to medium heat. Cook haloumi for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden brown.
  6. Divide salad between serving plates and top with warm haloumi.

Cooking Tip: Try cutting haloumi in thicker slices and cooking it over medium heat. This guarantees golden brown colour on the outside, as well as a warm, gooey texture on the inside.

Nutrition Tip: Quinoa is a nutrition powerhouse combining whole grain fibre and high-quality protein. This makes it a handy pantry staple to add to salads to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
