Just looked in the fridge. I have no chicken for a stirfry but I have a packet of veg and fresh noodles which need to be used today. I have a packet of halloumi. Can I use this or do I have to head to the shop? The shop is pretty far away. (And I'm lazy)

Its fusion cooking. Just be careful what sauce you put with it.

Veg and noodles would be a vegetable chow mein, perfectly acceptable on its own! I think I'd cook the halloumi in a separate pan to have on the side, just in case it makes a rank combination.

Any sauce suggestions? Something sweet to offset the saltiness maybe? Cooking it separately seems like a good precaution.

Sweet chilli sauce would compliment it beautifully

I added Halloumi to satay veg skewers with sticky rice last week and it was amazing.

Yeah I would roast it first then cut into cubes?

I bloody love halloumi!

If you google "Halloumi stir fry" you'll find a load of recipes

I'm veggie, I do this all the time! Sometimes with a 50/50 mix of halloumi and falafel balls

It's nice with sweet chilli and also lime and ginger sauces

I make a halloumi curry it's amazing. I do the curry with root vegetables, cook the halloumi then stir in at the last minute.

NicoAndTheNiners Wed 11-Jul-18 19:26:12

Pls can I have that curry recipe. Dd is newly vegi and so fussy!

Sickoffamilydrama Wed 11-Jul-18 20:11:44

Nico I kind of make it up as to what I have but the basics is fry onion's, cumin and couple of TBS of curry powder ( more or less if you don't like it spicy) then add chopped veg and stir then straight away add a tin of chopped tomatoes and a tin of coconut milk ( full fat coconut milk tastes way better) sometimes if it looks dry at the beginning I add some water then simmer until veg is cooked and sauce is reduced and thick. I fry the halloumi separately usually cut it in big strips and then stir in at the end and serve.

Thanks....what sort of veg would you recommend? Anything you like?

DailyMailDontStealMyThread Wed 11-Jul-18 20:21:32

Nico what about this recipe?

DailyMailDontStealMyThread Wed 11-Jul-18 20:24:13

In fact, most of that websites recipes are veggie and sound amazing.

NicoAndTheNiners Wed 11-Jul-18 20:55:35

I can't stand aubergines. grin but will check the rest of the website out, Thanks.

@NicoAndTheNiners this Rick Stein recipe is great with halloumi instead of paneer. Adjust the levels of chili to suit your tastes.

NicoAndTheNiners Thu 12-Jul-18 16:11:55

That looks nice @motherwol will try that next week. Thanks.
