Caramelise the Onion

Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a deep saucepan (with a tight-fitting lid) on medium heat.

Once hot, add the onion, season with salt and pepper and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden and soft, 8-10 mins.

Get Prepped

Meanwhile, drain the halloumi, then cut it into 2cm chunks. Place them into a small bowl of cold water and leave to soak.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Once the onion is golden, stir in the cider vinegar and sugar (see pantry for amount) and allow the vinegar to evaporate, 1 min.

Cook the Rice

Stir the garlic into the onions and fry for 1 min, then add the rice and stir until coated, 1 min.

Add the vegetable stock paste and water for the rice (see pantry for amount) and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam). 

Hello Halloumi

Once the rice is off the heat and steaming, remove the halloumi from the water. Pop onto a plate lined with kitchen paper and pat dry. Sprinkle over the lemon & herb seasoning and season with pepper. 

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the halloumi and fry until golden, 2-3 mins each side.

Add the honey (see pantry for amount) and turn the halloumi so it's nicely glazed, then remove from the heat. Cover to keep warm. 

Mix your Pilaf

Once the rice is ready, fluff it up with a fork and stir in the peas, chipotle paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and butter (see pantry for amount). 

Pop the lid back on and allow the peas to heat through, 1 min.

Taste and season with salt and pepper. 

Serve Up

Share the chipotle pilaf between your bowls and drizzle over the soured cream.

Top with the glazed halloumi to finish.
