The Ingredients

I love that the ingredients are divided according to which part of the recipe they’re used for. A quick pantry check and I found that I needed everything for this recipe.

Fortunately, none of the ingredients were difficult to find at my usual grocery store. The halloumi cheese was in the deli cheese section instead of the dairy display. Otherwise, everything was where I expected to find it. I even found spicy harissa on the International food aisle.

Harissa Halloumi & Roasted Vegetable Wraps & Sweet Potato Wedges Ingredients
Red bell pepper, sweet potatoes, harissa, olive oil, whole grain wraps, courgette (zucchini), cumin, smoked paprika, sliced cremini mushrooms, red onion, halloumi cheese, hummus, and plain Greek yogurt

The Process

Having the ingredients list divided into sections made following the instructions pretty easy. Marinating the halloumi cheese in the spicy harissa was the first step. I tried my best to cut the halloumi into 12 pieces, but I only managed 8. Any thinner, and I was afraid the cheese would fall apart.

Once the halloumi was marinating, I sliced up the vegetables for the filling and tossed them in the oil and spices. Tossing the vegetables was the only change I made to the recipe. Instead of tossing them on the sheet pans, I used my largest mixing bowl to toss them in olive oil and spices. I find this method coats the vegetables more thoroughly and isn’t as messy.

Next, I cut the sweet potatoes into 8 wedges each and tossed them the same way I did the other vegetables. It felt weird not peeling them first, but the recipe explicitly said not to.

I mixed up the dipping sauce and fried the halloumi while the sweet potatoes and other vegetables finished roasting. This was my first time frying halloumi, and it didn’t turn out the way I imagined.

Halloumi has a high melting temperature, and the photos I’ve seen of it fried show a browned outside. Even though I preheated my grill pan, the cheese just didn’t brown. I think there was too much steam from the evaporating harissa to sear the halloumi. A little disappointing because I think it would have added some flavor, but the warmed cheese was still delish.

Assembling a wrap

Once everything was done, I assembled a couple of wraps for dinner. I spread on some hummus, topped it with the roasted veg, some arugula, and the fried halloumi. Then. I wrapped it all in a sheet of parchment. A side of roasted sweet potato wedges and the dipping sauce finished the meal nicely!

Timing

Here’s how my time was spent on this recipe:

  • 8 minutes to prep
  • 25 minutes to roast the vegetables
    • 7 minutes to prep the sweet potatoes and sauce (done while roasting veg)
  • 25 minutes to roast the sweet potato wedges
  • 5 minutes to finish roasting the vegetables
  • 1 hour 3 minutes total

That was a bit longer than the 50 minutes listed. I’m not sure where the slowdown happened. Either way, I would like to try this recipe again and roast the vegetables with the sweet potatoes to speed things up. I have a feeling that would make the time closer to 45 minutes.

So how was it?

I loved everything about this Harissa Halloumi & Roasted Vegetable Wraps & Sweet Potato Wedges, from the spicy yogurt dipping sauce to the salty halloumi cheese! The vegetables were roasted to perfection, just like the sweet potato wedges. They were lightly crisped outside but soft on the inside, and I barely noticed the peels. Adding a cool yet spicy dipping sauce complemented the meal beautifully. These tasty wraps were easy to make and assemble but they did take a bit longer than the time listed. I'm not sure where my slowdown happened, but I didn't mind it once I took my first bite. Next time I'll try roasting the vegetables for the filling and the sweet potato wedges at the same time to speed things up.
