  • 500g Essential Charlotte Potatoes, halved lengthways
  • 250g Essential Cypriot Halloumi, cut into bitesized pieces
  • 1 Essential Aubergine, cut into bitesized pieces
  • 1 Essential Courgette, thickly sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp Cooks' Ingredients Herby Zaatar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp Essential Greek Style Yogurt
  • 1 clove/s garlic, crushed
  • ¼ x 25g pack mint, finely chopped, plus a few torn leaves to serve
  • 3 Essential Salad Onions, shredded


  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7 and line a large baking tray with parchment. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the halloumi, aubergine and courgette in a bowl. Add the cumin, zaatar and olive oil, season and mix well to coat.

  2. Drain the potatoes and set aside briefly to steam dry. On a board, press each potato down with a fork, until slightly crushed and the skin splits.

  3. Put the potatoes onto the baking tray with the halloumi and vegetables, and shake it so the potatoes take on a little of the oil. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are crisp. Meanwhile, combine the yogurt, garlic and mint in a small bowl and season. Serve the traybake scattered with mint leaves, the salad onions and the garlicky yogurt for dolloping.

Cook’s tip

If you’re clearing out the veg drawer, swap in chunks of red onion, peppers or halved tomatoes in place of the aubergine or courgette. For a cheat’s alternative to the minted yogurt, pick up a pot of tzatziki.
