Recipe of the Week – 15th June 2015 – Italian Style Halloumi Wraps

 It’s local festival season in Derbyshire at the moment, and we at Pulse Cafe are lucky to be in a town (New Mills) where there is a lot going on (a carnival and two festivals in the next three weeks alone!). As such, I thought that I would make some simple but filling snacks for people to eat whilst out and about. I made the pesto myself, as unfortunately it’s still very hard to buy a ready-made veggie version. This was a bit of an experiment, but the flavours worked really well. Even I had trouble eating more than one!

Makes 6

Ingredients 

6 wheat tortilla wraps

3 packs of Halloumi

2 red onions, peeled and finely diced

1 large pack of fresh spinach, washed and roughly chopped

3 large tomatoes, diced

For the Pesto;

100g raw cashew nuts

50g vegetarian Parmesan, grated

Small bunch of fresh basil, chopped

1 clove of garlic, crushed

30ml olive oil

Salt and pepper

Method

1. Place all of the pesto ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth (I actually prefer it slightly lumpy!)

2. Cut the Halloumi into 10mm thick slices and chargrill on a dry griddle pan until brown, turning once.

3. Spread 1/6 of the pesto on a wrap, then add the Halloumi and remaining ingredients. Fold to form a wrap sealed at both ends and cut in half. Repeat to make six.
