Recipe – Halloumi pasta with lemon and mint

I’m a huge fan of Halloumi. It’s a rich cheese that you can grill or rasp or use in a hundred different ways.

Halloumi Pasta with Lemon and Mint

  • Ingredients
    • 200g Halloumi cheese
    • 400g pasta, whole wheat
    • 2l vegetable stock
    • 2 lemons
    • 4 sprigs of mint, fresh
  • Directions
    • Finely grate the cheese. Chop a handful of the mint leaves and set aside. In the meantime, cook the pasta in the vegetable stock. The liquid should cover the pasta by an inch or so
    • If the liquid gets too low before the pasta is cooked, add a splash more. You want most of the liquid to have been absorbed by the end, but with some still remaining
    • Layer some of the grated cheese and mint in an empty shallow bowl per person. When the pasta is al dente, ladle half a portion into the bowl along with a little of the stock
    • Sprinkle another layer of the grated cheese, top with some more pasta and finish with the final layer of cheese. Sprinkle with a generous amount of the fresh mint. Squeeze the juice from ¼ to ½ a lemon over each bowl and serve with a few more wedges if needed

This was just a great and easy dish and one my family also fell in love with. I did put some roasted chicken-cubes on it for my parents, so they would have some meat with this pasta, but I had mine just like the recipe and I enjoyed it a lot. I got the recipe from the Great British Chefs website and it was easy to follow and one of my new favorites. I adapted it a tiny bit to follow my vegetarian diet.
