  • rice
  • 400 g halloumi
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp paprica powder
  • 400 g crushed tomatoes
  • 250 ml cream

black beans marinated in lemon (optional)

  • 380 g black beans
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp tabasco or other chili paste
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Chop onion and peel the garlic. Chop the bell pepper in cubes
  • Cut the halloumi in rather big squares
  • Start boiling the rice
  • Heat up a frying pan with some oil, then fry the halloumi until they reach a nice color on at least two sides. A tip is to pour away the liquid that forms in the beginning, otherwise it will take longer to finish frying
  • Remove the halloumi from the pan and leave for later use.
  • Add another tbsp of oil and fry the onion, garlic and bell pepper for 2-3 min until onion has softened
  • Add tomato paste and spices, let it fry another minute
  • Add the halloumi, crushed tomatoes and the cream
  • Bring to a boil and let it simmer for 15 min
  • Serve with rice and the marinated black beans
