- 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus a few extra glugs
- 3 sprigs of mint, leaves finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons lemon or orange juice
- ½ teaspoons honey
- 2 x 150g blocks of halloumi
- Preheat your oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Place a large roasting dish in the oven to heat up.
- Peel the beetroot and cut into 4cm cubes. Toss into a bowl with a pinch of salt, pepper and a gloss of oil. Tumble onto your warmed dish. Roast for 25 mins or till tender.
- Whizz the chopped mint, olive oil, juice and honey in a food processor or blender for an extra creamy dressing or shake everything up in a jam jar till well mixed.
