Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.
Squash, Kale, Red Cabbage and Halloumi Salad
That sounds like there’s a lot going on! There is but this vegetarian festive salad is simple, hearty and healthy. I’d describe Kalettes as a cross between a Brussel and kale. Here I combined them with red cabbage which I roasted with the squash and clementines. The clementines become soft and sweet when roasted so make an excellent dressing just by themselves. I added puy lentils for protein and the Halloumi because I love it’s squeekiness and saltiness! And delicious with the sweet clementines.
