On Monday, the Swan Whisperer and I went into Brixton to explore the new Pop Brixton that has opened where the ice-rink used to be, but as it was Monday, everything was firmly closed. So we got our lunch from a street stall called Pots of Brixton, which was a jacket potato place. The SW had a meat filling, but I chose the veggie one, which was halloumi, chickpeas, mushrooms and tomatoes. So, of course, I had to try to recreate it at home, only with noodles instead of potatoes.
½ packet halloumi cheese, sliced, and each slice cut in half.
½ punnet mushrooms, sliced
4-5 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed, or the equivalent amount of dried chickpeas, soaked and cooked (which is what I used, as they are nicer)
Seasonings to taste
100 g rice noodles (this was too much - 75g would have been better)
Place the vegetables in a lidded pan with a little oil, and allow to cook in their own steam for about 10-15 minutes. Do NOT do what I did and leave the heat too high so that it dries out - this would have been a lot nicer if I hadn't!
Add the cooked chickpeas, and heat through. Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packet.
