By now I think you can tell how much I loveeeee Halloumi, but taking it to the next omgggg level is here, Satay style!!!
You can make your own satay sauce if time permits and you've got a recipe you like, but the satay sauce I used in this creation is one of my new OBSESSIONS.
I'm using Marion's Original Thai Spicy Satay Marinade and it's the bomb!! It's wickedly spicy, super versatile and doesn't contain anything nasty, so I'm totally ok with using it with this dish and in so many other ways, (It's really yummy to marinade fish in too ;)
For me it's all about making healthy foods taste AMAZING!! If you enjoy what you're eating you won't feel deprived or bored, so Enjoy my lovelies xx
1 whole medium eggplant (Cut into bite sized pieces)
1 small block of halloumi cheese (Cut into bite sized pieces)
4 Tbls of Thai Spicy Satay Marinade (Marion's Original found at Coles)
2 cups of Steamed greens ( I used beans and broccoli)
1 cup of Brown rice ( I pre cooked my rice to make things easier, quinoa etc could be used if preferred)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbls of pepitas
8 small skewers
Cut eggplant and halloumi into even bite sized pieces, place in a sandwich bag or container, add marinade and mix until everything is well coated, place in the fridge to marinate for 30mis, Preheat oven to 180 degrees, line a baking tray with baking paper, thread pieces of eggplant and halloumi on the skewers, you should get approx 2-3 pieces of each per skewer, place onto the baking tray and bake in the oven for approx 15mins, of until the eggplant is tender and halloumi is golden.
Whilst the skewers are baking, heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat, add the sesame oil and the pre cooked brown rice and garlic powder, slightly brown and heated through, add the greens and mix well, add salt and pepper to taste and lastly the pepitas, mix until everything is well combined, serve along side the skewers and enjoy, Yummm xx
