Since moving to Australia I have gotten absolutely addicted to halloumi. Not only is it super delicious, it’s able to be fried or grilled due to it’s high melting point. OMG – fried cheese – crispy and melty and salty! Halloumi is also very high in protein and fat, which make it ideal for people trying to loose weight or with diabetes.
It can be cut into small pieces and sprinkled over a salad, adding bite and flavour, or just eat it out of the pan with a drizzle of lemon juice and olive oil.
Here I have presented it over a bed of baked butter beans, complimented with avocado, tomato and a sprinkling of dukkah. Enjoy!
Halloumi – 4-5 slices of either cow’s or sheep milk
1 serve baked butter beans
1 chopped avocado
1 chopped tomato
1 tsp dukkah
1 tablespoon olive oil
Add olive oil to frying pan and heat to medium. Add halloumi slices and fry until it turns a golden brown colour. Flip halloumi and fry on other side.
Add baked beans to bowl and add chopped vegetables.
Shred halloumi and add to bowl. Drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil and dukkah

I love halloumi! It’s even better than mozzarella. I grate it and mix iy with other cheeses to make Lebanese cheese pizzas!
