Halloumi is brilliant – it’s great for quick dinners and veggie barbecues. BBC Food has halloumi recipes for every occasion. Try it in veggie burgers, risottos, pastas or even as a veggie alternative to bacon.

Halloumi with quick sweet chilli sauce

by Nigella Lawson

There is something so compelling about this squeaky cheese, and my fridge is stocked with it at all times. Most regularly I treat it as vegetarian bacon, dry-fried in a hot pan then dolloped with a peeled, soft-boiled egg. But the idea for this recipe came to me one evening when I felt the need to counter the siren call of the halloumi’s saltiness with some sweet-and-heat.
