Halloumi Bake with Tomato and Basil

By | January 4, 2017

I’m slightly obsessed with halloumi. I love cheese generally, but halloumi is special. It isn’t like cheese. It’s just halloumi. It makes your teeth squeak and it’s wonderful. Coupled with my love of anything one pan and this is a pretty perfect meal. Lots of veggies, loads of flavour, really easy to make, and very limited washing up! Beautiful. Feel free to change the vegetables to those you like, or add more/less, it’ll still work.

You will need:

  • 250g Halloumi cheese
  • 500g New potatoes
  • 3 Courgettes
  • 1 Yellow pepper
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 100g Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 2 tsp. Basil
  • Pinch of Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Oil

Firstly, cut the potatoes in half, add to a pan of water, bring to the boil and let simmer for around 10 minutes. I have tried to do it, just throwing them into the pan completely uncooked. But, they take so much longer to cook than everything else that it just doesn’t work as well.

While this is happening, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Next, roughly chop all the vegetables, cut the tomatoes in half, and slice the block of halloumi into 8. Don’t worry about them being even.

Place the courgettes, peppers and onions into a baking tray. Drain the potatoes and add them. Drizzle with oil, add a pinch of salt and pepper and a good shake of basil. Then mix everything together. I think even at this point it looks incredible. All the colours just make it look exceptionally appetising.

Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

After 40 minutes, remove from the oven, and mix. Add the tomatoes, and place the halloumi on top. Top with another shake of basil, and another drizzle of oil if you think it’s too dry. I like to use a fry light spray so I spray and then toss everything about again, to make sure it’s spread evenly.

Return to the oven for a further 10 minutes. Serve straight away.
