Sweet Potato and Halloumi Bake


A yummy vegetarian sweet potato and halloumi bake with roasted sweet potatoes, red and yellow peppers, red onion and garlic, finished off with grilled halloumi cheese (it squeaks at you from the grill!).

This really is a meal in itself but some crusty bread alongside would go down well.

WHERE DOES HALLOUMI CHEESE COME FROM?


Halloumi is an semi-hard, unripened, brined cheese made from a mixture of sheep and goats milk and made in Cyprus and Greece.

It's meaty in texture and has a high melting point so it's a great cheese for grilling (as it is in this recipe).

SWEET POTATOES


Sweet potatoes are packed with goodness and keep you feeling full. Sweet in taste, they work well in curries, soups and casseroles. But, one of my favourite ways of eating them are roasted, with some smoked paprika and sea salt.

  4. I have had halloumi in Cyprus, but have never seen it here in the US, which of course doesn't mean it can't be had. This looks fab, I'm glad to see that you are getting hubby accustomed to some meatless meals, well, a bit of bacon doesn't count, right? :-)

  5. This looks great Beth, I've been wondering what to do with the Halloumi in my fridge. I even have the sweet potatoes too!
