Here’s my favourite wrap recipe: Grilled HALLOUMI chees wraps with yoghurt, tabasco and mango chutney as well as a bunch of crunchy colourful veggies. Me and my second half used to make these often when we lived in London and we have perfected the recipe since. Actually, he was the one who introduced me to halloumi and I immediately understood what the fuss was about. I love the saltiness of the cheese combined with a bunch of crunchy vegetables, tangy yoghurt and sweet mango chutney. When you grill halloumi, it sort of turns from stiff to soft & smoky – really good and addictive.
I didn’t want to determine the portions here because it really is up to you: some people prefer more veggies, others like a bigger serving of cheese, etc. Arrange all of the ingredients on the kitchen counter and figure out what works best for you.
Prep + cooking time: 15 mins | 1 packet of halloumi (250g) serves 2-3 people
- Halloumi cheese
- purple cabbage
- Crunchy lettuce, e.g. little gem or romaine
- Natural yoghurt (not greek, get the thinner kind)
- Mango chutney
WRAP 'EM UP
Wash all the veggies and cut them into thin slices, except for spinach. Preheat a cast iron or other heavy duty skillet, add sliced halloumi and cook on both sides on medium heat until it turns brown and slightly crispy on the outside.
Arrange veggies & grilled halloumi in the middle of your tortilla. Drizzle with yoghurt, a bit of mango chutney, tabasco for some heat & roll it into a wrap. Enjoy immediately while the halloumi is still warm. Beware of the dressing dripping down the sides of your hands. It always happens to me... this is definitely a messy kind of meal.
