INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Add the cous cous into a large bowl. Very finely grated the carrot and add to the cous cous. Pour over the boiling stock, stir, cover and leave to sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the halloumi into slices, spray a frying pan with Frylight and cook the cheese on each side until golden. Dice and set aside.
  3. Now make the salsa. Finely dice the onion and tomato and add to a bowl. Add the chilli, corriander, salt and vinegar and leave to one side for the flavours to develop.
  4. Uncover the cous cous. Fluff up and add the halloumi, mint and eggs. Mix well and form into 4 burgers.
  5. Spray the frying pan with Frylight again and, on a low heat, fry on each side (around 7 minutes per side) until golden.
  6. Serve in a bun or flat bread (Syn accordingly) with the salsa spooned over the burgers and a dollop of fat free Greek yoghurt.

  1. Just made this for 4 and it was delicious! I added a tin of mashed mixed beans to it too, along with 2 tsp of paprika, a rounded tsp of cumin, a tsp of mixed herbs and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Lovely summery tea.

    1. Hi Rachel,

      These would probably be better to freeze from cooked so they hold their shape better. Pop some parchment paper between them before freezing to stop them from sticking and reheat thoroughly 😊

    1. Hi Jessica
      As far as I know, there aren’t any flatbreads that are an HEB option, so as mentioned in the recipe you should Syn them accordingly

    1. Hi Vix
      We’ve not tried freezing them, but I’m not sure that they will hold up to freezing very well. You can keep them in the fridge for a couple of days

  2. Hi mate I’m dying to make this recipe, I have everything apart from the reduced that halloumi, can’t find it anywhere, where do I get it? Xx
