Avocado Toast with Grilled Halloumi and Honey
The classic avocado toast gets a fresh makeover with the addition of grilled Greek halloumi cheese, complimented by fresh lemon juice, honey and pepper flakes!
Servings: 2 servings
- 2 large slices thick cut whole wheat levain (or your favorite bread)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 9 ounces halloumi cheese, sliced
- 1 large avocado
- Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- Pinch red pepper flakes
Toast your bread using whichever method you prefer.
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. Add the butter and let it melt. Swirl the pan to coat, then add the sliced halloumi. You can do this in a couple of batches if all of the cheese doesn’t fit at once. Grill the halloumi a couple of minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove to a plate while you prepare the rest of the toast.
Spread half of the avocado over each slice of toast, smashing down with a fork if necessary. Squeeze the lemon juice evenly over the avocado, being sure not to lose any seeds.
Place the grilled halloumi slices over each piece of toast. You may have one or two slices extra, eat these or save them for later use.
Finish off the toast by drizzling the honey evenly over both pieces of toast and sprinkling on red pepper flakes, based on your spice tolerance. Enjoy immediately.
