Pan Fried Halloumi with some Greens

A mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk that has high melting point and so being a cheese can still be grilled and fried conveniently!! Its been my favourite since a while and so has made me experiment a bit in the kitchen. You can have raw halloumi chopped up into slices like mozzeralla or even grate it over pastas. 100 grams of a piece would fulfill your requirements of fats and proteins with low level of carbs and thus makes up a great ingredient even for breakfast recipes. Fried is my favourite one and just cannot resist sharing it here. You can have this as a salad dish to serve your guests or as a quick dinner or a lunch. Fresh flavours and bright colors justify it as a summer dish. Gets done in minutes and can surely be selected as a last minute option..

Ingredients

A pack of halloumi cheese
1 cup coleslaw(mixture of grated carrots, beetroot and cabbage)
1/4th cup sprouted beans
100gms mixed salad leaves
1.5 tspn spice mix(mixture of salt, crushed black pepper and smoked paprika)
1 slice of fresh lemon
1/2 avocado, sliced

Method:

  1. Place a pan over the stove and turn on the heat to a medium flame. Brush halloumi with some olive oil and place it in the pan. Cook on each side till it forms a beautiful brown crusty layer. It usually takes about 3 minutes for each side.
  2. Mix all the the other ingredients in a bowl. Dice the fried halloumi and add to the mixture.
  3. Sprinkle spice mix and mix everything.
  4. Transfer everything to your plate or serving bowl, squeeze some generous amount of fresh lemon juice, top it up with some sliced avo and serve!

Tips:

  1. The proportions of vegetables in coleslaw and spices in spice mix is just random depending upto your preference and taste.
  2. You can add any other ingredient of your choice or even remove any from this.

Happy Cooking!!
