1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked
Handful of mint leaves
3 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 lemon, zested
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Step 1 Roughly chop the parsley and mint leaves, reserving a few whole leaves to garnish. Toss the chopped herbs with the tomato, lemon juice, oil, cinnamon and cumin, then season with freshly ground black pepper.
Step 2 Thickly slice the haloumi, then fry in a dry, non-stick frypan over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes until golden, then turn and fry for a further 1-2 minutes until golden.
Step 3 Place the lentils on a serving plate, then top with tomato mixture and haloumi. Scatter over olives, lemon zest and reserved herbs, then serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.
