In the pre Thanksgiving craze where everyone is planning their menus, a few of my cooking groups had people posting messages looking for vegetarian alternatives to turkey. Immediately what came to my mind were cooking cheeses like paneer and halloumi.

Halloumi is one of my favorite cooking cheese. It is a firm brined cheese from Cypress, usually available at Middle Eastern markets or gourmet supermarkets like Fairway and Whole Foods.  I usually just cook it stove top as pan seared slices. As it’s comes in a mint infused brine and is salted, you can have as is without the need for additional seasoning. However, that doesn’t mean additional flavor would be a bad thing. In this method, additional flavor is baked into the halloumi for over the top flavorful slices.

  1. I have only tried eating halloumi sandwich from outside and I really loved it, but never picked it up to try in my own pantry, since I am trying to cut out on unnecessary grocery spending… hehe… the baked halloumi looks amazing, just apt to put in between a couple of toasts with loads of greens…

  2. Can’t say how it would have tasted as I’m totally unaware of the taste of halloumi, but one thing I can certainly say that you halloumi with that cranberry sauce make me drool uncontrollably 😀
