Haloumi and Roasted Capsicum Burgers
Serves: Serves 2
  • ½ cup hummus
  • 2 tbsp olive tapenade
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 180g (6oz) haloumi cheese
  • 2 white buns
  • 2 slices roasted capsicum (bell peppers)
  • 2 small handfuls of rocket
  • squeeze of lemon
  1. Place the hummus into a bowl and swirl through the olive tapenade - if the tapenade is very thick, you can thin it out with a bit of olive oil.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat.
  3. Slice the haloumi into ¼ inch or ½ cm thick pieces.
  4. Once the oil is hot, cook the haloumi for a few minutes on each side, or until shot with golden brown.
  5. To assemble a burger, split the buns in two, and spread the bottom slices with most of the hummus-tapenade sauce.
  6. Layer over half the haloumi, top with half the capsicum, half the rocket, a squeeze of lemon, and finally the top buns, smeared with any remaining sauce.
  7. EAT!
