Try these juicy and delicious Haloumi & Eggplant Burgers as a meat free BBQ option or when friends drop around to watch the footy.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 eggplant, cut into 4 round slices around 2 cm thick
  • 2 x 180g packs Lemnos Haloumi
  • ½ cup good quality tomato relish
  • 1 large ripe tomato, sliced
  • 20g rocket or salad leaves, washed
  • 4 bread rolls cut in half and toasted

Method:

  1. Cut the Lemnos Haloumi into quarters, first cutting it through the middle on the long side and then cutting each half in 2 thick slices so that you have 4 large flat slices of cheese from each block.
  2. In a large frying pan on a medium high heat, add the oil and fry the eggplant for a few minutes on each side until golden and tender. Remove the eggplant and cover with aluminium foil to keep warm.
  3. In the same pan, fry the pieces of Lemnos Haloumi on both sides until golden brown and keep warm with the eggplant.
  4. When you are ready to assemble the burgers, spread the base of each bread roll with relish, then top with the rocket leaves, eggplant slices, a couple of tomato slices and 2 slices of toasted haloumi.

Serve immediately.
