Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes or until just tender. Drain, then tip into a large, shallow roasting tin and scatter over sliced peppers. 

Place the olive oil, basil leaves, lemon zest and juice into a small blender with some seasoning and blend until coarsely chopped. Pour over the vegetables and toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes.

Turn up the heat to 220°C, gas mark 7. Add the halved tomatoes and sliced halloumi to the tray and roast for a further 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

Serve straightaway. 


Try this recipe with diced feta in place of the halloumi.
