  • 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC/425ºF/Gas Mark 7 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place broccoli in a bowl of boiling water and leave to sit for 2 minutes to soften slightly. Drain and place on the lined baking tray.
  • Make 3 cuts lengthways across the broccoli heads. This will creating an opening for you to stuff the broccoli with the fillings.
  • Fill each cut with a slices of haloumi, red onion and dill.
  • Drizzle the lot with olive oil and season with a few crunches of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Place in the oven and roast for 10 minutes, or until the haloumi has melted and the broccoli is cooked.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the Anti-inflammatory Drizzle by combining ingredients in a small bowl.

Dairy-Free Option: Replace yoghurt with coconut yoghurt and swap haloumi for avocado – trust us, avo tastes great warmed!
