Halloumi Stuffed Peppers

The sun is shining, the garden is coming into bloom and that demands colourful food to match the weather. (Well, actually it is chucking it down with rain as I type, but it was sunny when I cooked this a couple of days ago!). These peppers are stuffed with cous cous, vegetables and delicious halloumi, or squeaky cheese as Syd calls it!

I ate mine for lunch, accompanied by glorious sunshine in the garden. To make it into an evening meal you could serve with a green salad and fresh crusty bread. Yummy, and so cheerful to look at too!

    Delicious! Thank you for sharing my family and I love peppers and halloumi (my kids call it squeaky cheese!). Am going to try this recipe at the weekend! Cheers, Helen

    My husband loves halloumi but I’ve never tried it so this looks like a good recipe to have it for the first time.

    I hate red and yellow peppers but funnily enough, love the green ones so I think we’ll be trying this very soon with them x

    Sounds delicious, our favourite snack is anything with Halloumi cheese in it at the moment. I’ve even managed to get my girls to have a we nibble

    We love stuffed peppers. I’m not a huge fan of halloumi but the kids love it

    We LOVE halloumi. I have never thought of adding it to stuffed peppers. Oh yum

    These look amazing, Sonya, I usually stuff my peppers with mince meat and rice, this would make for such a welcome change!xx

    Ooooh wow what a wonderful food to have for supper or at a BBQ

    These look delicious, perfect combination of flavours.

    I love couscous AND Halloumi so this is a recipe I will definitely be making. I remember the first time I tried Halloumi back in the early 90’s, my sister in law made me a salad made with “flip-flop cheese”. We still call it that now! 😀

    I love halloumi and it’s great to find a new recipe to enjoy it as I struggle to think of new ways to eat it. This looks yummy!
