I have always loved halloumi cheese and how it holds it’s shape when cooked over high heat. During the summer I really enjoy using halloumi in various dishes alongside fresh seasonal vegetables and crusty bread, like this beautiful colored halloumi burger.

I was never a big fan of classic beef burgers but I find this vegetarian halloumi burger absolutely delicious. Grilling the tomatoes and peppers really enhance their flavor, as high heat quickly caramelizes their natural sugars and result in slightly charred and juicy tomatoes and peppers.

I like the burgers a bit spicy, so I sprinkled generous amounts of freshly ground black pepper over the vegetables and added horseradish mustard as well.

I highly recommend this halloumi burger for a quick and flavorful summer dish. Hope you will try it out, it’s simply wonderful. Serve as it is, or alongside baked potato chips, baked potato wedges or crispy oven fries.
