Halloumi  Tacos

How to Make

Halloumi tacos with homemade salsa macha, cherry tomatoes and avocados will give a little Middle Eastern kick to your taco night routine!

Gather the ingredients

– 1 halloumi – 1 avocado – 8 corn tortillas – 1 pint cherry tomatoes – ½ purple onion – Fresh cilantro to taste – Lime wedges to taste – ½ cup Pumpkin seed salsa (Salsa Macha)

To grill halloumi cheese at home, grab a non-stick pan and use it on the stovetop. Drizzle the pan slightly with oil, and preheat the pan over medium-high heat.

Once your pan is pre-heated and oiled, place the halloumi cheese slices directly on the pan; cook them for 2 minutes on one side, and 1 minute on the other.

Remove halloumi from the pan, and use in the halloumi tacos immediately - it will lose its gooey texture and become more rubbery as it cools.

Assemble tacos!

Lightly toast your corn tortillas in the same pan you used to fry the halloumi cheese

Lay 2 pieces of grilled halloumi cheese per taco, topping them with a few avocado slices, some halved cherry tomatoes, and a few slivers of purple onion.

Dilute desired quantity of sunflower seed salsa with a few teaspoons of water to make it more drizzable. 

Top halloumi tacos with a generous drizzle of pumpkin seed salsa and a generous sprinkling of fresh cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Substitute the halloumi cheese for sliced extra firm tofu. Sprinkle each slice with salt and pepper before grilling the tofu slices
