I love Halloumi and grilled veggies. So I was happy to find this recipe for Halloumi and Roasted Summer Vegetable Sandwiches. Nigella Lawson was the first chef I saw use it. And I was hooked. This sandwich is super easy.
Halloumi and Roasted Summer Vegetable Sandwiches
8 oz halloumi, cut into 1-inch strips
2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into thick strips
2 zucchini, sliced lengthwise
2 summer squash, sliced lengthwise
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp harissa
1 tbsp za’atar
salt and black pepper, to taste
8 oz pesto
4 ciabatta rolls
Heat oven to 450F.
Toss the halloumi, red bell peppers, zucchini, and summer squash with the olive oil, harissa, and za'atar. Spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Roast for 30 minutes.
Cut the ciabatta rolls in half. Spread the pesto on the cut sides of the rolls. Divide the roasted vegetables and cheese among the rolls. Serve warm.
The next day I just made a salad of grilled veggies and pan seared halloumi for lunch. So good!
