This is one of my go-to meals, when I am in a hurry or have people coming over. This is also one of Mr.Mans favourites. It’s fast and easy.
The shopping list (serves ~3)
- 1 block of Halloumi cheese
- 6 Burger buns
- 2 red peppers diced
- 1 medium red onion diced
- 1 large tomato diced
- 1 bunch of coriander finely chopped
- 4 cloves of garlic minced
First I make the relish/sauce;
Heat some oil in a pan, when the oil is hot, add the diced onion.
Cook the onion until it is slightly brown (this adds some smoky flavour to the sauce).
Add the garlic and peppers and continue to cook the mixture.
Once the peppers soften add the tomatoes and coriander. Pepper to taste.
(I do not add salt to this as I find the halloumi has enough salt to balance the whole burger. If you find halloumi too salty you could make this burger with chicken instead.)
Cook it all until it becomes a thick sauce consistency. If you like crunchy vegetables just cook the red pepper for a shorter amount of time.
That is the bulk of the cooking done.
Just before you are ready to eat, cook the halloumi. My favourite way is to cut the block into 0.5cm slices and just put them directly onto a hot non-stick pan. Flip the slices when the first side becomes golden. Repeat on the other side and place the slices on the bun.
Enjoy. Have a great weekend.
