My friend Anne Marie asked me recently “What’s a cheap and delicious vegetarian sandwich filling? I need one for a private event.”
I replied “Err, halloumi, tapenade, dill and cucumber with sweet red pepper?”
I’ve never actually made this sandwich before but it sounded so delicious I thought I’d give it a go. Just wish I’d made it in a kitchen that wasn’t infested with mice, yes my friends, Vince is back.
For those of you who don’t know Vince, he was a small mouse that terrorised me for several months last year. But it can’t be Vince, I’m pretty sure Vince is deceased, so who’s this guy? Must be his bigger, fatter brother, let’s call him ‘the mouse formally known as Vince’… Prince.
Prince shot out of the fruit bowl and hurled himself off the worktop after I disturbed a bag of bagels. I’d had a few wines so over reacted slightly by picking up a frying pan, flailing it around and squealing like a mad tapir. Put me right off my halloumi. Not enough to stop me eating it though obviously, would take more than a bit of mouse piss to put me off my halloumi… Bon appetite!
2 tsp of kalamata olive Tapenade on one slice
2tsp of houmous on the other slice
6 Slices of fried halloumi
1 roasted red pepper cut into strips (jared)
Extra Virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Finely sliced red onion to garnish
I’m not going to tell you how to make a sandwich, I’m sure you can figure this one out on your own. Enjoy!
If you’ve had a go at making my sandwich or any of my other recipes I’d love to hear about it @corrieheale firstname.lastname@example.org
