It would depend on cheese/veg ratios and serving portions, but it sounds like the core of a good main or side dish. Maybe a shareable appetizer.

Or...a light lunch meal like a “hot salad”.

Tell us more!

Well, it would include some stuff that will be a bit of a sweet base, then some balsamic/red wine vinegar vinegar for acidity, walnuts for bitterness...The halloumi itself for saltyness... Will see when I feel like making it.

As for ingredients I had planned on halloumi cut into thin slices, yellow/orange bellpeppers, small sweet tomatoes, some finely chopped leeks, some finely chopped red chili, and coarsely ground black pepper, and garnishing with garden cress.

You might want some crunch besides the walnuts. Celery, bamboo shoots, jicama or water chestnuts, perhaps. Or some toasted seeds.

And something like radish to give it a little zing.

That said, to answer your ORIGINAL question, I don’t think rice would hurt the dish, but it may not help it that much, either, depending. If it’s stir-fried with the veggies, it will absorb some of the sauce, which could be a good thing indeed.

Never heard of Jicama, and don't think I can get hold of that. Definitively not a fan of celery (I have had a delicious root celery soup, but don't like the stem variant). the water chestnuts or bamboo shoots would make it a bit more Asian than I had intended.

Also, regarding rice and flavor...something like a turmeric butter rice or a multi-rice mix could bring more color and flavor to the party.

No game night this week. Waited a couple of days and had Indian curries.

Starter pakoras with tamarind sauce

Chicken Bhuna and Kadai Planner. With garlic naan.

Think the Kadai is the one on the left.

4th Indian meal in the last year.

Between the large order of onion rings, the mushroom burger with grilled onions, and the beer I had for dinner Wednesday night, mi digestive tract was in full gas production mode. I knew I was going to be unpleasant company, but my older DOG came halfway into my room, stopped, and left without so much as asking for an ear scratch, Didn’t see her again until she had to go out post-midnight,

Tonight I was much more reasonable, and just had the newest thing on my favorite Columbian joint’s menu: the chicharron caribeño plate, with pork chop & skin, plantains, rice, corn cake, beans, and a salad of avocado and tomatoes. Plus one brisket empanada. I actually didn’t finish the meal, it was so freakishly large,

Lol would try both if those except the pork chops.

Grilled chicken base in a spinach wrap. It's actually green.

And then with everything else added.

Bit of a disaster tonight forgot half of everything and then spelt the milk everywhere.

I’m a coffee barbarian. What’s a flat white?

Apparently we invented it.


It's kind of like a latte but not very frothy. More just milk and coffee. And it's stronger.

Going away for ANZAC day. Breakfast joint, Greek and Mongolian bbq lined up to try.
