1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, sliced into half moons
1 red pepper
about 10 new potatoes
Haloumi (half a pack, diced)
1. Sautee onion in olive oil.
2. After a couple of minutes add in other diced veg including diced potatoes, sizzle until slightly "caught", then add about a pint of water. Stir, scrape up bit from the bottom of the pan. Cover and allow to simmer for 10 ish minutes. Check on it - you want the veg to be cooked, and most of the water absorbed, but nothing burnt.
3. When veg is about done, and most of the water absorbed - chuck in about another 1 tbsp oil, so that you get a bit of frying, and crisping up of the edges going on.
4. After a couple of minutes add diced haloumi and frozen peas - stir/toss, cover - after 2 minutes, taste, season. turn off heat and let cook through in residual heat
Scoff. You could "big up" the flavours by using stock instead of water - adding garlic/chili/curry etc - but the haloumi adds savouriness and the veg are all fresh, so I don't think it needs much.
