Halloumi recipes

Salty, chewy and at its best when fried, this tasty cheese makes a great addition to salads, burgers, skewers and more. Browse all of our halloumi recipes below.

Halloumi is the squeaky cheese that elevates a midweek dinner from good to great. Try it in pasta dishes, like orzo with halloumi and blistered tomatoes, or a comforting Turkish macaroni cheese. Lentil stew, a chorizo and tomato traybake and nachos all get the squeaky cheese treatment. Meanwhile, Halloumi fries are the side dish we can’t get enough of, or try the cheese lightly charred and served with fermented honey.

If you’ve got leftovers, discover what to do with leftover halloumi here.
