Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C fan/gas 6. Heat the oil in a large shallow ovenproof casserole or pan and fry the onions for 5 minutes. Add the garlic, green pepper and spices, then fry for another 5 minutes. Stir in the olives, preserved lemons and chickpeas (including the liquid from the tin).
  2. Add the potatoes, stirring to coat, then the stock (the liquid should just cover the potatoes) and cook in the oven for 45 minutes until the potatoes are tender and starting to crisp. Switch the oven to the grill setting and heat to medium high.
  3. Slice the halloumi lengthways and lay it over the potatoes. Grill until soft and golden. Serve immediately while the cheese is all lovely and stretchy, sprinkled with plenty of fresh coriander.

  1. Ideal for a chilly weeknight. Really tasty, one pan, store cupboard ingredients. We have fairly large appetites and found the quantity about right for two of us plus lunch the next day.
