Today was quite warm here, but I'm not sure if the good weather is going to continue. However now it's nice to dream of summer and eat a light salad with barbeque flavours at least. I found this tasty barbeque sauce and bought it even though it refers quite heavily to meat products. The product itself is of course suitable for vegetarians and quite tasty, so I try to ignore the name. I haven't used barbeque sauces for ages, maybe it's just not something that vegetarians do so often, but now I'm totally hooked. I can see this coating many vegetables for me and adding flavour. What are your thoughts about barbeque sauce?
I used these ingredients for the salad:
2 romano peppers
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp barbeque sauce
½ cup freekeh
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp vegetable stock powder
250 g halloumi
1 tsp vegetable oil
Mixed salad leaves
First I chopped the peppers into generous cubes and roasted them coated in olive oil. Once they were roasted, I coated them with the barbeque sauce and let marinade for a while.
Chop the garlic finely and cook it a little in olive oil. Add the freekeh, water and vegetable stock powder and cook until done.
Cut the halloumi into cubes and fry them in vegetable oil until they are golden brown.
Serve all these components with some mixed salad leaves. I served the freekeh, barbeque peppers and halloumi warm, but the salad is also tasty when served cold.
Have a nice week!
