I have an addiction to halloumi cheese 🙂 The first time I ate it, years ago, I was initially freaked out by the strange texture between the teeth as you chewed it. It sort of ‘squeaks’! And the taste is stronger than most, in an unusual way. These days, I enjoy cooking it for myself in lots of variations, and for my Belgian friends, most of whom have never eaten it before…

So, for another very simple dish!

Brown rice served with a milky sauce of coconut, halloumi, raisins and broccoli

First, note that garlic can be added to any of the below, or not, as your tastes prefer! Same for seasoning with sea salt and/on ground peppercorns.

I prepare some brown rice (cooked up in just 20 mins, with a little piece of vegetable stockcube in the water).

In a pan, cook some onions and garlic, crumble in a little vegetable stockcube. Season to taste. Add some cream or milk (approx. 300 ml per person depending on desired portion size and thickness), and warm up but not boil. Stir in a several tablespoons of desiccated coconut and a large handful of sultanas/raisins.

Once the sauce is fully blended, add the 1cm cubed halloumi cheese*. Then add the broccoli. Keep everything very crisp and don’t over cook, i.e. 10 mins max!

Serve out the cooked rice, and then the sauce

Bon appétit! Eet smakelijk!


* You may wish to lightly fry the 1cm cubes of halloumi cheese beforehand, to brown and harden the cheese edges 🙂
