It’s a common misapprehension that you can just stick two fried halloumi slices inside a burger bun, fill it up with some fresh cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce and call it a halloumi burger. I’m the first to admit that it’s a quick and delicious treat, but a burger? Nah. Try instead to coarsely grate the halloumi together with carrots, courgettes and some fresh mint and fry it for a couple of minutes in a pan. Then you’ll have yourself a proper halloumi burger. We first got the idea for these burgers at a food stall at one of the Sunday markets in London. There they served it almost like we have done here, on a cabbage leaf and with a yoghurt dressing, but you could also just go all the way with classic burger buns. We have fried these in a pan, but you could also put them on a barbecue.

Burgers

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 small courgette
1 large carrot
200g halloumi cheese
5 sprigs mint, leaves picked and chopped

Tahini dressing

Quantity Ingredient
120ml plain yoghurt
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon maple syrup
or 1 teaspoon clear honey
pinch sea salt

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
large green leaves, like savoy cabbage
pea sprouts
avocado
lettuce
sauerkraut

Method

  1. Grate the courgette, carrot and halloumi cheese on a box grater on the coarsest side. Place in a bowl, add the mint and toss to combine. Form six patties with your hands.
  2. Stir all the tahini dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. Heat a dry, non-stick frying pan and fry the patties on each side until golden and soft. Serve in a large cabbage leaf with a dollop of tahini dressing, some pea sprouts and sliced avocado and a spoonful of sauerkraut. The patties and the dressing can be stored in the fridge for 3–5 days.
