Ham-wrapped haloumi

  • 200g haloumi, sliced

    For the Harissa-spiced chickpeas, preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Grease a baking tray and line with baking paper. Dry chickpeas on paper towel. Place in a large bowl with olive oil, harissa and a good pinch of sea salt. Toss to coat well.

  • Step 2

    Spread in a single layer on the prepared tray. Roast for 20-25 minutes, until crunchy. Set aside to cool. Make up to 1 day ahead.

    For the Spanish baked eggs, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Finely slice half the chorizo and cook for 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a serving platter.

  • Step 4

    Finely chop remaining chorizo. Add the onion to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes and smoked paprika and cook for 10-15 minutes or until thickened. Stir in beans, spinach and remaining chorizo. Cover and cook for 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Season.

  • Step 5
