Rinse the halloumi & pat dry with paper towel; halve crosswise, then cut into ¼ inch slices.

1Roast Carrots

On a lined sheet pan, toss carrots with a drizzle of oil, pinch of salt & pepper. Arrange in a single layer & roast, flipping halfway, 15 to 18 min, until tender.

2Make Rice

In a small pot, combine rice, a big pinch of salt & measured water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover & cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed & the rice is tender. Turn off the heat & fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

4Cook Veggies

Add other ½ of ginger/garlic blend. Add cabbage & pak choi, cook for 5-7 minutes until just tender. If skillet gets too dry during the cooking process, add splashes of water. Remove from pan, place on plate. 

5Sear Halloumi & Warm Sauce

In the same skillet, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Sear the halloumi, 1 to 2 min per side, or until golden brown. Remove halloumi from skillet, place on veggie plate. Add peanut sauce & warm over low heat to desired temperature. 

6Finish Rice & Serve

Divide the rice between your bowls. Top with the carrots, cabbage, pak choi, halloumi. Spoon the sauce over. Garnish with green onion, edamame & sesame seeds. Bon appétit!
