Spiced Halloumi & Couscous Meal Prep

Jump to Recipe
Olalaaa this might be my favourite lunch of the series yet. It’s fresh, filling, salty and delicious. The halloumi is fried on the day to maximise crispiness/texture and also, make sure you slice it like this - it feels like you get way more from a block that way. Hope you love it!

Ingredients

  • 225 g halloumi, sliced into small squares (£2.30)
  • 400 g couscous (£0.80)
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced (£0.45)
  • 1 orange pepper, thinly sliced (£0.45)
  • Handful of parsley (£0.55)
  • 10 tbsp yogurt (£0.45)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 tbsp olive oil + 1 tsp per serving
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika, smoked if possible
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 800 ml stock of choice, I chose beef

Method

  • Start by adding the peppers into your airfryer. Coat with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set the temperature to 180°C and the timer set to 20 minutes.
  • Next, add your stock of choice to a heat proof bowl along with the spices. Whisk to combine and add the couscous into the bowl.
  • Stir and cover. Leave for 10 minutes (or to the time that your packet suggests).
  • Add an individual servings of couscous to meal prep containers along with the roasted peppers and uncooked halloumi chunks. Seal and store in the fridge.

When it’s time to eat

  • Fry the halloumi chunks in 1 tsp of olive oil until golden brown. Optionally add a dusting of paprika when frying.
  • Top your meal prep bowls with the spiced halloumi, a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of parsley. Add chilli flakes if you like things hot.
