2 spring onions – finely sliced

Spiced Tahini Dressing Ingredients

1 tbsp of dark tahini

1 glug of white wine vinegar

5 tbsp of natural yogurt

Glug of red wine vinegar

Good sprinkle of white pepper

Good sprinkle of chilli flakes or hot paprika

 

Method

Begin by combining grated halloumi, sesame seeds, ginger, carrot, courgette, pepper and coriander. Once thoroughly mixed, take a handful at a time and squeeze out any excess juice. Set to one side on paper towels to absorb any excess water until ready to fry.

Heat a non-stick pan over a medium to high heat and after a minute or two add the halloumi patties, squashing them down a little once in the pan. If your pan is hot enough you won’t need to add any oil, the halloumi should do all the work here. Allow to cook for at least two to three minutes or until crispy and golden then carefully flip the patties using a spatula, being careful not to break up the burgers.

Next prepare all ingredients for the slaw before making your spiced tahini ingredients. When ready to serve combine the two, thoroughly mixing and adjusting the seasoning and spice to taste.

Serve burgers fresh from the pan alongside your spicy slaw, arranging inside a pile of gem lettuce leaves.
