Halloumi flatbreads – the perfect midweek vegetarian supper

These loaded flatbreads are surprisingly filling, but you can add griddled chicken or lamb, roasted vegetables or whatever takes your fancy.

Loaded Halloumi Flatbreads

Serves 4

Prep: 20 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes

Ingredients
250g halloumi, cut into 12 fingers
4 large flatbreads or wraps
125g hummus
1 tbsp harissa

For the crunchy salad
½ small red cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, coarsely grated
1 small red onion, grated
4 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 x 400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and drained
a handful of coriander, chopped
juice of 1 orange

For the dressing
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red chilli, diced
1 tsp grated fresh root ginger
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp black mustard seeds
200g Greek yoghurt
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method
Make the crunchy salad: mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

Make the dressing: heat the oil in a small frying pan over a low heat. Add the chilli and ginger and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the seeds. Cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Put the yoghurt in a clean bowl and stir in the chilli, ginger and seed mixture. Season to taste. Gently toss the salad in the dressing.

Dry-fry the halloumi in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown and crispy on the outside and softened inside. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.

Warm the flatbreads on a griddle pan or in a low oven and spread them with the hummus. Top with the halloumi and crunchy salad, and dot with harissa. Serve immediately.
