Last week I went to foreign food mart when I had rather a lot to drink. I always end up buying far more expensive items when I am a little tipsy than when I am sober. Anyhow I woke up the next morning to find some halloumi sitting in my fridge as well as more salt and vinegar crisps than it is acceptable for one person to eat.
I’m actually very glad that I bought the halloumi, as it’s a treat I always enjoy when I’m on holiday. For those not aware of the deliciousness of halloumi its a gorgeous cheese from Cyprus. If mozzarella and feta had a baby, halloumi would be the result. It has the texture of mozzarella and saltiness of feta. I decided to make some delicious stuffed peppers.
Halloumi (mine came in a 180g pack but I only used 120g)
3 whole peppers (any color)
100g of couscous
A glug of olive oil
Start off by making the couscous. I made a simple one with just courgette in it, but you can see my previous recipe if you don’t know how to make it. Cut the peppers in half lengthways then drizzle them with olive oil and roast them in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes until they are slightly soft. Fill the peppers with the couscous, then top with a slice of halloumi and put under the grill again until the cheese is golden brown. Drizzle with pesto and serve with salad. Voilà, another tasty treat.
