Charred Roasted Broccoli and Haloumi Salad.

I have a dear friend that lives about 2 hours away from me on a Diary Farm and we often share recipes and recipe books and are constantly buying each other cook books, this was one she shared with me from one of Chelsea Winter’S Books. It is very tasty and super easy awesome for a veg dish for a mid week meal .


  • About 2 heads of Broccoli, thickly slices
  • 350gm Haloumi, thickly sliced
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 2 onions ( I use red ) thinly sliced
  • 2 long red chillies
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest finely shreded
  • 8 small sprigs of Oregano
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Rocket leaves and lemon cheeks to serve


  1. Preheat the oven grill to high ( you can also char grill on a bbq if you wish )
  2. Line a large baking tray  with baking paper
  3. To make the studio topping, place the capers and onion, chilli, lemon rind, oregano,and oil in a medium bowl and mix to combine
  4. Place the Broccoli and haloumi on the tray and spoon over the topping over to roughly coat
  5. Place the tray on a middle shelf in the oven and grill for 20 to 25 minutes or until the broccoli, halloumi, and onion are charred and golden

I  actually use the bbq for the broccoli, then pan fry the halloumi and then pan fry the ingredients for the studio topping .

  1. Serve with the rocket leaves and serve with a generous squeeze of lemon juice
