Food: Dinner Tonight – Roasted Cauliflower and Halloumi Cheese Tacos

Last March I visited a friend in England and she introduced me to Halloumi cheese dish served in a Mediterranean restaurant in London. Since then I have included this amazing cheese in salads, and simply served fried with a bit of tomato sauce for dipping – kind of like mozzarella sticks in a restaurant without the batter.  You see the cheese has the best elasticity and even melted holds together very well – so you can actually use it in variety of appetizers and as a side dish.

So, guess what happened to me when I saw this recipe for roasted Cauliflower and Halloumi cheese tacos!!!!!!!!!  With a beer of your choice to wash it down of course. My mouth is watering as I settle into my kitchen to duplicate the recipe:


  • 1 large, or 2 small, heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons sesame or olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 (14 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 8 ounces halloumi cheese, sliced
  • 1 cucumber or zucchini, shredded


  • 1 avocado, halved
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1 jalapeno
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • kosher salt and pepper {more}
