crispy halloumi with mediterranean cous cous + ideal home show ticket giveaway!

Actifry recipes

The Tefal Actifry is a nifty kitchen gadget which lets you conjure up culinary delights with just a little cooking oil. The clever air frying technology means you can cook up some mouthwatering chips with a tiny drop of oil, making them a healthier option to deep frying. Although most popular for chip recipes, the recipe booklet shows how you can make the likes of curries, stews, vegetables and even desserts in the Actifry. 

A huge fan of halloumi, it totally made sense to try out a halloumi recipe and I was super pleased with the results. Crispy on the outside and soft within. I mean, it’s still halloumi cheese afterall, but with just a tiny bit of oil means just a tiny bit less guilt.

Step one. Boil a kettle and pour hot water over your cous cous until completely covered + 1 cm. Set aside.

Step two. Slice your halloumi into generous cubes, being careful not to let it break up.

Step three. Add your halloumi to the actifry and drizzle over the oil. Remove the paddle from the Actifry - this is brilliant for rotating chips but the halloumi can break up as it moves round. Turn on and set to 10 minutes. It is ready when crispy and golden brown on the outside.

Step four. Your cous cous should now be ready, so stir through the balsamic, olives and tomatoes. Season to taste.

Step five. Serve your cous cous with halloumi on top, a scattering of rocket and extra balsamic should you wish.
