21st September, 2013

I had lunch yesterday with Catie and Julia. Miraculously the rain took a day off and for a few hours we had a brief reminder of summer – we ate al fresco.

Catie cooked a delicious roasted red pepper (pimiento) and halloumi bake. The dish consisted of a  sugo (tomato sauce) base, her secret savoury ingredients being, English Mustard, Marmite, oregano and Worcestershire Sauce. This was layered with roasted, peeled and sliced red peppers, followed by breadcrumbs, more sugo, peppers, breadcrumbs, sliced peppered halloumi, black olives and fresh basil.

To go with the pepper and halloumi bake, Catie made a crunchy salad of little gem lettuce, chives, spring onions, watercress, celery, cucumber and toasted mixed seeds. It was dressed with olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire Sauce, honey and English Mustard.

To mop up the sauce we had sourdough bread from E5 Bakehouse, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.

We ate the whole lot – not a crumb was left. Catie was keen that I emphasise, the entire lunch, minus wine, cost less than a fiver!

As it was summer redux, we drank a little Bordeaux Rosé.

    Peppers and haloumi: fascinating and I so have to try even tho’ [hmm 🙂 !] somehow just perhaps marmite [or its Oz counterpart] might be forgotten 🙂 ! Thank you for something really original and glad you had an ‘outdoors’ feast!!

  2. Mmmm what a lovely meal and such good value.
    Cheers

  3. Marmite and worcestershire sauce – how can you go wrong! And the sunshine in the photos looks wonderful 🙂

  4. How excellent to be eating outside. Absolutely delicious and wonderful looking dish, but horribly named for something with such good ingredients. The word “bake”, when used as a noun in describing a dish, puts me off terribly. When it’s used in that context it brings to mind institution food or worse….anything called “Tuna and Something Bake” has a bad smell and taste, even in words:)

  5. Looking great there MD. Starting to really get into using halloumi, being something of a ‘Johnny-come-lately’ to. Perfect for a bit of late summer sun.

    Sounds like you had a great time! I have to say that I’ve never tried halloumi or marmite before. I’ve seen marmite only a few times at the store and I had no idea what it was for. I guess I need to purchase a jar and see what it’s all about :).

    Marmite is a great stew ingredient. It adds a lovely beefy flavour. Go easy on it though.
    Best,
    Conor

    Looks tasty and good for you eating outside, making the most of the lovely weekend warmth. I’m going to enjoy coffee breaks in the garden this week while we have a hint of Indian summer.

  9. Definitely going to try this one! Perfect “crisis” veggie recipe.
