Hot spiced beetroot and halloumi protein boost salad

Warm salads always sound a bit dodgy to me. This one’s hot. Serve it hot out of the oven (or reheated) and add as much spice as you like. It’s a great way of boosting your protein intake – but better still, it just tastes nice.

If you’re keen on boosting your protein intake, this will give you about 50g of protein (obviously it’ll serve more than one person – how many depends on how hungry/greedy you are!)


  • 200g beans – either a drained can, or the equivalent dried and soaked beans – haven’t tried it with baked beans though 😉
  • 4 cooked beetroots diced
  • 1 pack of half fat halloumi cheese
  • 200g tofu chunks (the marinated ones are particularly nice)
  • Spices to taste such as black pepper, chilli, cloves, allspice or something middle eastern, perhaps


Dice everything and chuck it in a grill-proof dish and add the spices, putting the halloumi on top.

Grill it for a few minutes until it’s browning.
