Baked figs with Haloumi. Yum! Something a little bit different. I’m lucky enough to have some figs at the moment. Figs easily lend themselves to sweet or savoury dishes. I had some Haloumi on hand and I thought why not combine the two.
This dish makes an easy side dish. It could be served with any meat dish, roast, barbecue or as an addition to a salad, warm salad or vegetarian meal or pasta. It is super quick to prepare.
This is how I did it
1 tablespoon olive oil
Ground black pepper
Set oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Spread the oil in the base of a baking pan. Gently wipe or wash the figs. Cut in half. put straight into baking pan cut side up. slice the Haloumi cheese to about 1/2 cm thick.
Put a piece of Haloumi on top go each fig. Season with a little ground black pepper. put in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until the Haloumi is golden. serve immediately.
