Prepa­ra­tion time: 15 min­utes Cook­ing time: 5 min­utes To­tal time: 20 min­utes Serves: 2


½ tsp fen­nel seeds

½ tsp co­rian­der seeds

1 tbsp sun­flower seeds

1 tbsp pump­kin seeds

4 Waitrose Duchy or­ganic car­rots 1 courgette

5 tbsp cider vine­gar

2 tbsp sul­tanas, roughly chopped

½ x 250g pack hal­loumi, cut into 1cm slices


1. Dry-toast the fen­nel and co­rian­der seeds in a fry­ing pan for about 1 minute until fra­grant. Set aside to cool slightly, and then roughly crush in a pes­tle and mor­tar. Mean­while, dry-toast the sun­flower and pump­kin seeds for 1-2 min­utes until golden; re­move and set aside.

2. Us­ing a veg­etable peeler or man­dolin, care­fully pare long rib­bons from the car­rots and courgette (dis­card or snack on any leftover pieces). Place in a large bowl with the vine­gar, crushed fen­nel and co­rian­der seeds, sul­tanas and 100ml ice-cold wa­ter, then set aside.

3. Mean­while, dry-fry the hal­loumi slices in the fry­ing pan over a medium-high heat for 1-2 min­utes on each side, until golden, then re­move and chop into chunks. Drain the car­rot, courgette and sul­tanas in a sieve, shaking off any ex­cess, and dis­card the liq­uid. Place on 2 plates and top with the warm hal­loumi be­fore scat­ter­ing over the sun­flower and pump­kin seeds.
