I always hear people raving about 'real' pepperoni. It's so versatile and so colourful and tasty, but I've always thought - so is the veggie version! I understand that the concept may seem strange, but it's much more smokey and firery, and it's a great way of getting some vegetarian/vegan protein. This salad bowl may seem like a strange combination of ingredients, but it is honestly so tasty. You've got the nutty sweetness of the parsnip, paired with the smoky kick of the pepperoni and then the salty tang of he halloumi. Everything works so deliciously well together. And if this wasn't enough, you've also got balsamic roasted chickpeas and onions, and freshly roasted cherry tomatoes too...a proper healthy lunchtime treat.
This salad bowl really does pack a great punch. It's filled with lots of great flavours and textures and plenty of goodness, and it is so simple to make. If you are vegan, you can easily swap the halloumi for a vegan alternative, or replace with something else like hummus, which is just as tasty. You could swap the roasted tomatoes for raw cherry or sun-dried tomatoes if you would prefer, although the roasted tomatoes add an extra element of warmth to the bowl. Basically, it's a super easy goodness bowl, and hopefully a great way of showing you how versatile, tasty and easy vegetarian pepperoni is to use!
An unusual combination, but a winning salad bowl. Great for those who have less than 30 minutes for lunch!
