Broad bean, halloumi and mint farfalle

This is a wonderfully simple meal which smacks of the summer. Broad beans are very much in season at the moment and the saltiness of the halloumi works so well with the tender little beans. Also it’s cheap to put together. Does it get any better?


  • 500g of broad beans (£1.50)
  • 1 lemon (30p)
  • 28g of fresh mint (79p)
  • 250g of halloumi (£2.23)
  • 500g of farfalle pasta (61p)

The cupboard staples…

Olive oil, salt, black pepper and 3 cloves of garlic

Total cost

If you already have the cupboard staples, then according to, this trolley was cheapest at Sainsbury’s where it came to £5.43 - that's £1.35 per head!


  • Pod your beans first so you have them ready to use.
  • Next up you can cook the pasta. Use 100 grams of farfalle pasta per person and cook as you would usually. You need to work fast here from now on as we want to mix all the ingredients together whilst still hot at the end.
  • Now get a griddle pan (frying pan fine if you don’t have a griddle pan) on a medium heat and slice the halloumi up into rectangle slices and cook on each side for around 1 minute on each side. Keep warm until ready to use.
  • The pasta will be around 4 or 5 minutes off now so put the broad beans in the same pan to save on water. They need 4 to 5 minutes to cook!
  • Very finely chop the mint and garlic and you can also roughly chop the halloumi which has been keeping warm.
  • Once the pasta and broad beans are ready drain and stir in the mint, garlic, halloumi, a good honest glug of olive oil, the juice of one lemon and season well with black pepper only (the halloumi is salty enough).
  • Happy eating!
