Vegan Halloumi

WHAAAAAAA?? Yes you read correctly. I found this wonderful recipe online from Cooking With Plants. I love how the first instruction is store the tofu in the freezer - I've been doing that for years too because it creates spongy tofu! It didn't exactly taste like halloumi but with a spritz of lemon it would be a great substitute in any halloumi recipe. Pretty delicious with sweet chili sauce or chili jam!


Vegan Halloumi

Ingredients

250 g Organic Tofu (medium or firm)
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Paprika Powder
1/2 tsp Tumeric
1 tsp Sea Salt (Celtic or Himalayan) ground
1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
1/4 cup Boiling Water from boiled kettle
1 tbs Grapeseed Oil for frying


Method

Place tofu into freezer overnight.
Remove tofu from freezer and let thaw in fridge.
Press liquid from tofu.
Pat the tofu dry and slice into 1/4 inch (1/2cm) slices.
Prepare your marinade by combining remaining ingredients (except oil) in a bowl until well combined and smooth.
Baste tofu slices on both sides and if you have time, let marinade for at least a couple of hours or over night.
Heat non-stick pan on high/medium-high (or BBQ) and add a little bit of oil.
Add halloumi slices and cook on each side until golden and crispy (about 2 minutes on each side).
Cook until all halloumi slices are browned on each side... serve and enjoy!
