A beetroot orzo pasta dish served with halloumi


  • 300g Cooked Beetroot

  • 200g orzo pasta

  • 500ml vegetable stock

  • 1 red onion (chopped)

  • 150g mushrooms (chopped)

  • 1 teaspoon allspice

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon dill

  • 1 teaspoon galic powder

  • 225g Halloumi

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  • Pat the beetroot dry and cut into small cubes.
  • Prepare the 500ml vegetable stock
  • Heat a small amount of oil in a pan on a medium-high heat and add the chopped red onion and mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes
  • Add the orzo pasta and cook for 1 minute
  • Add in the beetroot and spices (I use a spice mix, but the allpsice, paprika, dill and garlic powder should be similar in taste)
  • Add the vegetable stock, stir and then add the pan lid with the spatula/wooden spoon still in the pan so that there is space for steam to escape
  • Allow to bubble away until most of the liquid is drained, this will be around 15 minutes
  • While the orzotto is bubbling, fry up some oil in a frying pan and cut the halloumi into large cubes. Add to pan and turn regually until browned on all sides, turn off heat.
  • Serve the beetroot orzotto and sprinkle the halloumi on top.
