Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time:


  • 1 Pack of good quality Halloumi Cheese
  • Half a bag of Kale
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper


Set the oven to a 160°C to warm.

Pop half then bag of kale into a mixing bowl and sift through it to remove any tough stalks. Pour over a little olive oil and massage it into the leaves. Finally sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cut the halloumi into slices about half a centimeter thick.

Spread the kale out on a large baking tray in an even layer and pop into the oven for  minutes. While this is in either grill or fry off the halloumi. I used to grill it under a medium grill turning halfway through but now I just pop it in a heavy based frying pan. You will find it loses a lot of liquid, so if frying simply drain it off, and if grilling just make sure you can catch it. Cook on a medium heat for around 5 mins each side, or until browned nicely, turning halfway through.

When the kale has been in for 10 minutes, pull it out and move it around as you find the outer leaves crisp quicker and pop back in for another 5 minutes.

Serve up the kale on a platter with the cooked halloumi on top.
