Spinach with Halloumi and Chinese garlic chives, quick comfort food!

When time is an issue I can always grab a packet of Halloumi cheese (if I have time I could make it, but not today!). Here it is cooked with Chinese garlic chives and served on a bed of spinach.

What you need:
500 g frozen spinach
1 bunch Chinese garlic chives
olive oil
a small pinch of salt
One block Halloumi

Defrost the spinach and chop the Chinese garlic chives. Put half of the garlic chives in a pan with olive oil, sizzle and then add the spinach and a pinch of salt. Sauté the spinach. In the meantime in a separate pan sizzle the remaining Chinese garlic chives with a little olive oil, then add the Halloumi and cook on both sides until golden. Cut into four and place over the spinach. Serve hot with some crusty bread.

  4. Protein and greens are my staple at the moment. I love "squeaky" cheese and I love spinach and I definitely love "quick", so this recipe is a keeper! :-)

  5. Chinese chives are my favorite especially in fried Chinese pancakes.
