Hello all halloumi and cheese fans. This recipe from Rick Stein is crispy and crunchy with my favourite sweet and savoury combo. Ready in about 10 minutes. It is a great starter served with a Greek tomato salad.

1 beaten egg
3 tablespoons of semolina or maize flour if gluten free

A delicious starter or light main course the walnuts add a bit of crunchiness and the mint makes it delicious. It’s lovely on its own or with crusty bread and other salads.
