On Friday nights I like to make dinner that is nice and simple without having to resort to takeaway meals or fish fingers (too often). This week I got some inspiration from Tandy Sinclair’s Weekly Ingredient Challenge as well as two delicious new additions to my fridge: mild salsa from Food Frenzy, mint haloumi from Green Goose Organic Farm and fresh coriander from my mother-in-law’s garden. The results look fancy, taste great, but are super simple to make.
- 1 baguette
- olive oil
- tomato salsa
- 2 medium size onions, cut in thin rings
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp warm water
- haloumi, cubed small
- 1 packet pork bangers (usually 8 in a pack)
- ground ginger
- fresh coriander, chopped
- Cut baguette into thick slices. Cut diagonally, its looks fancier and gives you more surface space.
- Dip the top surface of each slice in olive oil and place on a backing tray oil side up. Place tray in oven under the grill till golden and crispy.
- Fry the onion rings in 1 tbs of oil till soft, add the cumin, brown sugar and water. cook on a low heat till sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
- Fry the haloumi cubes till browned. Set aside.
- Cut the pork bangers in half, lengthways (see notes below). Sprinkle with ground ginger and fry till browned.
- Now assemble all the ingredients. My suggestions is (from bottom to top): baguette, salsa, onions, haloumi, pork, coriander.
