  • Serves 4
What You'll Need
  • Ginger, Black Sesame Halloumi Burgers
  • 1 tablespoon Black sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh ginger peeled & finely grated
  • 1 Carrot grated
  • 1 packet Halloumi cheese grated
  • 1 Courgette
  • 1 pinch White pepper
  • 1 handful Coriander finely chopped
  • 4 Gem lettuce ends removed & leaves left whole
  • Spiced Tahini Slaw and Dressing
  • 1/2 Medium sized white cabbage finely shredded
  • 2 Medium sized carrots grated
  • 1 handful Fresh coriander leaves
  • 2 Large kaffir lime leaves finely shredded
  • 2 Spring onions finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Dark tahini
  • 1 splash White wine vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons Natural yogurt
  • 1 pinch White pepper
  • 1 pinch Chilli flakes or hot paprika
  1. Begin by combining burger ingredients, 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.
  2. 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 al 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve burgers fresh from the pan alongside your spicy slaw, arranging inside a pile of gem lettuce leaves.
