Shaved Broccoli, Beans and Halloumi in an Orange Vinaigrette By Danielle Schwab


  • Two heads of broccoli
  • 1/2 lb dry beans (I always make 1lb and save the extra)
  • Halloumi (sub for any cheese if you don’t have)
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 Orange
  • Olive Oil
  • Champagne or White Vinegar
  • Any jam (I used Yuzu) or honey


  1. Cook your dry beans. I added 1 lb to a pot with enough water to cover, 2 bay leaves, 1 parm rind and a couple stick of thyme. Brought to boil and let simmer for an hour

  2. Chop up the broccoli head to make tiny pieces (save the stems for another meal)

  3. In a bowl squeeze the orange, add 4 glugs olive oil and 1 splash vinegar. Mix in a spoonful of jam or honey and whisk. Adjust to your liking

  4. Once all the other elements are ready, melt your halloumi in a pan until brown

  5. Top with sunflower seeds
