Do you like halloumi? I have a little bit of a pregnancy craving for it at the moment! This post from the BBC about ‘9 ways to serve halloumi‘ is of great interest to me! I think that the halloumi stuffed peppers sound really good and shall have to make an appearance in my meal plan shortly.
But your halloumi doesn’t need to be fancy to be delicious. I whipped up this halloumi in a simple tomato sauce and it went down a treat. Perfect eaten with some toast pitta breads.
The dough recipe that I have been using of late is from @Maybe_Rosie on Instagram. It is super simple – 2:1 recipe, 2 cups self-raising flour, 1 cup greek yoghurt. And then all you need to do is quickly fry them off in a little coconut oil and you’re done.
HALLOUMI IN A SIMPLE TOMATO SAUCE
150 grams of halloumi
1 red onion
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 bunch of flat leaf parsley
1/2 bunch of oregano
1 tin of crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp of olive oil
Bring a frying pan with the red onion, garlic, stalks of the parsley, oregano, crushed tomatoes and olive oil to a simmer. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes – adding a little water if the sauce starts to catch or become too thick.
Slice the halloumi into 0.5cm slices and make small holes in the sauce to place them. Lay the halloumi in the spaces and cook for 15 minutes or until the halloumi has melted slightly.
Serve toped with fresh parsley sprinkled on top.
