Tunisian-Spiced Grilling Cheese Bowls

with Couscous, Roasted Sweet Potato & Wilted Spinach

For this easy vegetarian dinner idea, our chefs just throw a big hunk of cheese directly into a hot pan. Yeah, it took us by surprise too, but it’s all about the halloumi—a sturdy Middle Eastern cheese that’s built for this technique. You’ll season the cheese with a Tunisian-style spice blend, sear it until golden brown on both sides, then serve it over a springy bowl of couscous with tender roasted sweet potato, spinach, and golden raisins. As it turns out, it IS easy being cheesy!

Baking Sheet
Small pot
Large Pan


Roast Sweet Potato

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Dice sweet potato into ¼-inch pieces. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack until browned and tender, 18-20 minutes.


• While sweet potato roasts, peel and mince garlic.

Start Couscous

• Heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot (medium pot for 4 servings) over medium-high heat. Add garlic, couscous, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until garlic is fragrant and couscous is lightly toasted, 30 seconds. • Stir in stock concentrate and ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4). Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook until tender, 6-8 minutes. • Keep covered until ready to serve. (You’ll finish the couscous in Step 5.)

Cook Grilling Cheese

• Slice grilling cheese lengthwise into four large pieces (eight pieces for 4 servings). Place Tunisian Spice Blend on a plate. Coat grilling cheese in spice blend, pressing to adhere. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. (TIP: Make sure your oil is shimmering before searing!) Add grilling cheese and cook until browned, 1-2 minutes per side.

Finish Couscous

• Add roasted sweet potato, spinach, and raisins to pot with couscous. TIP: For richer flavor, add 1 TBSP butter; 2 TBSP for 4 servings. • Stir until spinach is slightly wilted and butter has melted.


• Divide veggie couscous between bowls and top with grilling cheese. Serve.
