  • 2 oz halloumi cut into strips 4 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 small bunch broccolini
  • 1 cup cooked farro
  • 1 cup cooked green lentils
  • 2 cups kale finely shredded
  • 2 Tbsp shelled edamame
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste Juice of 1 lemon, divided
  • 1/4 head red cabbage thinly sliced 1/4 cup Bang Bang Sesame Sauce Sesame seeds, for garnish


  • Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a grill pan over medium heat. Cook halloumi strips until grill marks appear, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • While halloumi is cooking, place broccolini in a steam basket over 1/2 cup boiling water and steam 1-2 minutes, until tender-crisp. Remove from steam basket and set aside.
  • If using leftover farro and lentils, warm them in the microwave. In a large bowl, mix together the farro, lentils, kale, and edamame. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and half the lemon juice.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly dress the cabbage with 2 tsp olive oil, remaining lemon juice, and salt, to taste.
  • Divide farro mixture into 2 serving bowls. Add cabbage, broccolini, and halloumi to each. Top bowls with Bang Bang Sesame Sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Serve warm.
