To serve:

  • Toppings of your choice: sour cream (as image) or avocado / yogurt or salsa

Serves: 2         

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 210 °C (450 °F) while you slice the halloumi, red onion and peppers.
  2. Next prepare your fajita seasoning by mixing your spices together in a small bowl.
  3. Place the halloumi, sliced red onion and peppers on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle the fajita seasoning over the tray until you have an even covering.
  5. With a spatula or your hands, mix everything well. Drizzle with a little more oil if needed.
  6. Place the tray in the oven for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway. If you prefer your halloumi crispy, then you may want to extend the cooking time.
