Preparation steps


Clean, wash and slice the aubergine. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the aubergine slices on both sides for 5-7 minutes over medium heat until golden brown and season with chili flakes, salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside.


Meanwhile peel the sweet potato and cut it into cubes. Halve the chilli pepper lengthwise, remove seeds, wash and slice. Heat 1 more tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and fry the sweet potato cubes for 10 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds and chilli slices and season with salt and pepper. Also set aside.


Wash the asparagus at the same time, cut off the woody ends, peel the lower third of the stalks if necessary. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan, sauté the asparagus for 5 minutes at medium heat. Deglaze with 1 tbsp. lemon juice, add 2 tbsp. water, cover and cook for another 3 minutes.


Rinse and drain the chickpeas on the side. Wash basil and lemon balm, shake dry and chop. Mix the chick peas with half of the herbs and 1 tbsp. oil and season with salt and pepper.


For the dressing, whisk the remaining oil with the rest of the lemon juice, mustard, turmeric and honey, season with salt and pepper and mix in the remaining herbs.


Cut Halloumi into slices and fry on both sides for 5 minutes in a hot pan over medium heat until golden brown.


To serve, arrange sweet potatoes, slices of aubergine on plates, add chickpeas, asparagus and halloumi and sprinkle with the dressing. Sprinkle with the remaining sunflower seeds.
