  • Air Fryer


  • 225 g full-fat halloumi substitute with or low-fat
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • Fresh parsley to serve


  • Preheat the air fryer to 180C/360F

  • Place each slice of halloumi flat in the air fryer basket leaving a little room between each slice, they may expand a little bit.
  • Air fry the halloumi at 180C/360F for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway, until golden brown on each side.
  • Serve immediately as is or with some freshly chopped parsley, chili mayo, toasted pita bread, or on a salad!
