Try our very own Chef Marcia's Haloumi, Courgette and Herb Cakes with Chilli Dressing!

Ingredients for Cakes:

  • 2 Carrots peeled and grated
  • 1 Courgette Grated
  • 500g Haloumi cheese grated
  • 2-4 Spring Onions chopped
  • 2 tbsp Coriander chopped
  • 2 tbsp Mint chopped
  • 2 Free-range eggs lightly beaten
  • 2-4 tbsp Bread crumbs
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for the Chilli Dressing:

  • 1 Red chilli, finely sliced
  • 2cm pieces of fresh ginger, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 tsp Castor sugar
  • 2-3 tsp Rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

Method:

In a bowl mix the carrots and courgettes. Tip them into a clean tea towel and squeeze out the excess water. Put the haloumi, carrot and courgette mixture, spring onion, coriander and mint into a bowl, season and mix. Add eggs and mix. Stir in 2 tbsp of the breadcrumbs. The mixture should be sticky enough to form into patties. If not, add more breadcrumbs and shape into 8 large patties (10cm thick) or 16 smaller ones. Leave uncovered for 20 minutes to firm up.

Meanwhile put the dressing ingredients into a bowl and stir well until sugar has dissolved. Taste and season if necessary.

Once you’re ready to cook. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add some olive oil and fry the cakes until golden and crisp and hot all the way through.

Serve cakes hot with a spoonful of the chilli dressing.
