Easy Main Course Or Starter

Posted: September 15, 2010 in Food

This isn’t one of my recipes and to be honest, I cant remember where I got this one from so my sincere apologies if I am infringing any copyright laws.

Its dead easy, it takes about 10 minutes to prepare, can be prepared in advance and just slung in the oven when ready. It doesnt get any easier than that does it?  The dish contains butter nut squash, and even people who say they don’t like squash, have loved this, so give it a go.

I normally buy all the ingredients at Waitrose as they usually have the Haloumi cheese, but I know you can get it in Morrisons too. Also, don’t waste money on expensive balsamic vinegar, get a cheap bottle.

The ingredients are:

2 Butter nut Squash
4 Romano Peppers
2 Red Onion
1 block of Haloumi Cheese
Balsamic Vinegar
Olive Oil
Black Pepper

If you have never cooked squash before, you can leave the skin on but I always cut it off.  Once you have done that, cut the squash, peppers and onion into rough large chunks, better too big than too small.  Put it all in a suitably sized metal oven tray, pour on some olive oil, some black pepper and give it all a good mix up so its all coated with the oil & pepper.

Put it in the oven on about 180 (electric fan oven) and whilst thats cooking, cut the haloumi cheese into cubes.

After about 30 – 40 mins the veg should look almost cooked, take the veg out of the oven and add the haloumi cheese and pour over some balsamic vinegar. I love balsamic vinegar, so I put on quite a lot, but do yours how you see fit.

Give all a good mix up again and put it back in the oven until the haloumi starts to go brown and then its ready to serve.

You can serve it on its own in a bowl as a starter or as a main.  We usually have it with diced herb potatoes. Bloody lovely.

If you try it, let me know how you get on?
