A simple, tasty dish that can be whipped up in minutes. My teenage daughter wouldn't eat either halloumi or courgettes before trying these, but now she makes her own.

Halloumi and courgette burgers.

  • 600g courgettes, coarsely grated
  • 150g Halloumi cheese, coarsely grated
  • 1 egg
  • small bunch of coriander, chopped
  • small bunch of mint, chopped
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Sliced, toasted bread of your choice. I use ciabatta.

Lime and yoghurt sauce.

  • 1 dl Turkish yoghurt
  • 1/2 lime, zest and juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Rucola leaves, cleaned


  1. Mix together the Turkish yoghurt, lime juice and zest. Season with salt, sugar and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.

  2. Squeeze as much of the moisture as you can out of the coarsely grated courgettes. You can just use your hands for this, but I prefer to use a clean tea towel. Fold the towel around the courgette to form a ball and squeeze to remove as much moisture as possible.

  3. Mix the courgettes, halloumi, egg, mint, and coriander together in a bowl.

  4. Shape the mix into burgers. There should be approx 8.

  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and fry the burgers on a medium heat until they are browned on each side (approx 4 mins on each side).

  6. Serve with sliced, toasted bread of your choice, the lime and yoghurt sauce, and rucola leaves.

These were a bit fiddly to fry as they came apart quite easily..perhaps some flour in the mix would have helped bind them better. Tasted nice though.
