The ultimate grilled cheese - Halloumi Skewers with Roasted Tomatoes and a Spicy Green Chutney. Serve with warm Naan, and you've got one incredible meal!
Ingredients
  • Green Chutney
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, lightly packed
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 Serrano chilles
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Halloumi and Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • extra virgin olive, for brushing
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces halloumi
  • To Serve
  • mint, torn for garnish
  • lemon, halved
  • naan or other flatbread, optional, but highly recommended
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add all of the ingredients for the Green Chutney to the bowl of a food processor. Slowly drizzle ¼ cup of water as you purée the contents. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed and add more water if necessary (it should be fairly loose). Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Add the grape tomatoes to a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until soft and blistered.
  4. While the tomatoes are roasting, slice the halloumi into 1-inch cubes and thread onto skewers.
  5. Liberally oil a grill pan, heavy bottomed pan, or grill, and place over medium-high heat. Add the halloumi skewers and cook both sides until golden-brown, about 1 minute per side.
  6. Serve the halloumi skewers with the roasted tomatoes, green chutney, torn mint, lemon, and naan. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
* The Green Chutney can be made several days in advance - just cover and refrigerate.
* Halloumi can be found in just about any neighborhood with a large Greek population, at most international markets, and cheese shops. If you don’t have one of those stores available, a Whole Foods or Wegmans will most likely carry it.
