Our halloumi burgers are a refreshing Greek burger recipe with peppers and a yoghurt sauce that puts a Mediterranean twist on dinner. These halloumi burgera are a fantastic and exciting recipe with roasted red peppers and a minty yoghurt sauce, giving you a fresh and zesty treat. Instead of grilling the halloumi on a pan, why not try placing it on the barbecue instead and charring them slightly to give a smoky flavour. To liven up your halloumi burger, why not add a little bit of lemon zest into your tzatziki or mint and natural yogurt sauce. Serve these halloumi burgers with some delicious baked courgette chips, or a fresh and herby tomato salad to up your vegetable intake for the day, and as a healthy alternative to chips.
