Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the halloumi for 1-2 mins on each side until golden, remove from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining oil to the pan, then cook the squash for about 10 mins, until soft and starting to colour. Add the chilli and garlic and cook for a further 2 mins. Pour over the vinegar, then put the halloumi back into the pan, scatter over the mint and pour on the eggs. Cook for 5 mins until the base is set.
  2. Heat the grill to high. Flash the omelette under the grill for 5 mins until puffed up and golden. Serve immediately or allow to cool and serve cold with a salad if you like.

Great, easy dinner when served with a salad. I like a bit of heat so kept the seeds in the chillis which made a nice change.

Gorgeous! Also tried with addition of chorizo and fresh basil instead of mint. Yummy!

Delicious. Thought the addition of cider vinegar was odd but was in fact all good!

This recipe used a great combination of flavours and textures. My husband turned his nose up when he asked what was for dinner but thoroughly enjoyed the end result. Served with a mixed salad.

Very nice. All the flavours work really well together and while the squeeky texture of the halloumi was a bit unusual in an omellette, it was a nice change from feta. The mint is great in it.

Very nice. Use smoked halloumi which gave a nice flavour. Served with a mixed greens salad. Enjoyed by all.
