Halloumi – pleasure in every bite

Halloumi is a unique cheese traditionally made from a blend of goat and sheep milk. What makes halloumi authentic is its substantial texture and high protein content. Because of this, it doesn’t melt or lose shape at high cooking temperatures, developing a crispy golden-brown crust on the outside while remaining soft and creamy on the inside.

Halloumi is used in sandwiches, salads, pasta dishes, or as a side dish, prominently featured in vegetarian cuisine as a main ingredient. It has a mild, sweet flavor with subtle hints of smoke that pairs excellently with herbs.

Grilled Halloumi

It is one of the most beloved ways to prepare halloumi cheese. It’s sliced into thin pieces and briefly grilled or pan-fried in olive oil until it achieves its characteristic golden color. It’s served as a side dish with various meat dishes and salads or as part of tapas with a mint and lemon sauce.

Halloumi Salad

Halloumi salad is a lavish combination of fresh ingredients that particularly delight vegetarian connoisseurs. The mixture of green salad, boiled eggs, spices, and creamy avocado with grilled halloumi cheese creates a perfectly balanced and nutritious meal, often complemented with a dressing of olive oil, sesame, yogurt, and refreshing lemon. Halloumi also pairs beautifully with tomatoes, arugula, and baby spinach.

Halloumi Burger

Halloumi cheese, served in a soft bun, enriched with fresh arugula, juicy tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and slices of creamy avocado, represents a true pleasure that is hard to resist. It’s often accompanied by tzatziki or a honey and mustard sauce that perfectly complements the layered flavors of the burger.
