Halloumi, pepper & aubergines with sweet potato mash


400g essential Waitrose Sweet Potatoes, scrubbed and cut into small chunks
2½ tbsp essential Waitrose Olive Oil
1 small essential Waitrose Aubergine, diced
2 essential Waitrose Red Peppers, deseeded and sliced
½ x 250g pack essential Waitrose Cypriot Halloumi, cut into small chunks
2 tbsp essential Waitrose Clear Honey
2 tbsp essential Waitrose Balsamic Vinegar Of Modena


1. Put the sweet potatoes in a saucepan, cover with boiling water and cook for 10-12 minutes until tender. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and fry the aubergine, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Add the peppers and another 1 tbsp oil and fry for a further 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender and browned.

2. Drain the sweet potatoes, return to the saucepan, season and mash until smooth. Spoon onto serving plates and top with the vegetables.

3. Briefly fry the halloumi in the frying pan with the remaining oil to lightly colour and spoon onto the plates. Add the honey, balsamic and 3 tbsp of water to the pan and heat until bubbling and slightly syrupy. Drizzle this over the vegetables and serve.

Cook’s tip Make this recipe dairy free by using Taifun Olive Tofu in place of the halloumi.
