Diana Henry Roast potatoes with chilli, mint and preserved lemon Simple

Roast potatoes with chilli, mint and preserved lemon | Diana Henry (SIMPLE: effortless food, big flavours)

You will have to give me the benefit of the doubt with this recipe. The UK is currently experiencing what we call a heatwave, but is probably just our sad, brief excuse for a summer. I am literally sat with the windows open, fanning myself as I write this. Yet somehow I find myself roasting potatoes.

Halloumi has definitely become the new mushroom risotto as the go-to vegetarian option. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. Halloumi is bloody delicious and a bad mushroom risotto can be a miserable experience. Salty and savoury – halloumi seems like a natural alternative to bacon and I’ve had it with many a vegetarian breakfast. I’ve also seen halloumi battered and fried as it’s a piece of cod. It shouldn’t work, but it does.

I have been eating Grazing Shed burgers consistently since they opened way back in 2013. I’ve tried a few different things on the menu, but for me – I’m a bit of a creature of habit and so I found myself ordering the John Wayne burger time and time again. Since deciding to cut down on meat, I’ve been slowly going back to all my familiar junk-food haunts and trying their vegetarian/vegan options.
