Cajun-Spiced Vegetables & Halloumi Pita Sandwich
The secret to creating quick, delicious & healthy meals whenever they're needed, is having the right fresh ingredients in your fridge & pantry. Basics in my house always include vegetables such as leeks, mushrooms, fennel & zucchini, plain yoghurt (in my case lactose-free), organic lemons, some type of bread, eggs & packaged tofu & halloumi along with cherry tomatoes. Beans, pasta, different rices & grains, vegetarian broth, a wide selection of spices, mustards, vinegars & oils are a must.
