As you can probably tell by this and the last recipe I posted, I’m a little addicted to peach at the moment – it’s Summer (aka. time for lovely summery food) but Lancaster is still disgustingly cold and wet. Hence I am trying to force summer into my live via the medium of fruit. It’s kind of working. Also halloumi cheese is the best thing on the planet, ever, so forgive me for indulging my non-vegan side for today, it had to happen. Also keep in mind that halloumi is amazing grilled, so bring a pack if you’re invited to a BBQ as some people might forget to provide veggie options, so it’s nice to have a back-up.
Also please don’t do what I did and just pick out all the nice bits and leave the salad leaves. I do this every time I have a salad, just eat the bits like cheese or croutons and completely ignore the healthy bits, it completely negates the point of having a salad! Bad habit award for me.
Enjoy the summer food, and I hope it’s sunny wherever you guys are!
30g of halloumi cheese
One ripe peach
A big handful of salad leaves
Half a red onion
A little oil
A few mint leaves
The juice of half a lime
Tofu (optional, I added it in for some extra protein)
- Cook the onion in a little oil, then add in the tofu (if using) and halloumi until golden. Add in the diced peach until soft and warm.
- Put the leaves in a bowl, pour the cooked onions, tofu, cheese and peach over the top, then throw on the mint and drizzle with lime juice.
