halloumi bake

This easy one pot dish of baked halloumi, veggies and beans in a rich tomato sauce is a lovely vegetarian midweek meal (and it’s also naturally gluten free). Scattered with pine nuts and fresh herbs to finish, it’s a delicious dish to enjoy with gluten free flatbread and salad. Or of course you can also enjoy it as a standalone dish.

One pots make life so much easier, mainly as you don’t have to tackle a pile of washing up afterwards! They also help to ensure all the wonderful flavours from your ingredients aren’t wasted during the cooking process.

This is a naturally gluten free one pot, so is a great one to make when catering for a group or family with only one coeliac. Dishes like this are the best way to keep everyone happy and I love being able to cook the same thing for everyone.

Can I Use Different Veggies?

Yes the base of this dish is really flexible, so feel free to change it up and use whatever veg you have in your fridge. If using harder veggies (such as squash or carrots), give them a bit longer in the pan at the beginning to soften them up nicely.
