Smoky Tomato and Halloumi Bake
This Smoky Tomato & Halloumi Bake recipe uses one of my favorite cheeses – halloumi cheese or “squeaky cheese” as we like to call it!
Halloumi is a salty sheep / goats milk cheese which originates in Cyprus. It has a firm texture when it is cooked, and this causes it to squeak on the teeth when you chew it, hence the name “squeaky cheese”. Halloumi’s robust texture means that it is great grilled, barbecued, fried or baked, like in this Smoky Tomato & Halloumi Bake recipe.
This delicious recipe takes halloumi and white beans and bakes them in a rich, smoky, Spanish inspired tomato sauce! It is so quick and simple to make – it will be on the table in only 35 minutes. When I make it, I serve it in the same baking dish on the table and allow everyone to help themselves.
To make my version of Smoky Tomato & Halloumi Bake, you will need the following ingredients:
