Small grill bell peppers and halloumi

This was my first attempt with these little green bell peppers – as a matter of fact I haven’t even seen anything similar in stores before. These peppers are imported from Spain and are called Pimientos de Padron. Nice little delicacies and very quick to make. Good when served on the side of meat or poultry.

We baked the six seen in the picture above, but they really were so small that we could easily have eaten more: 8-10 would have been a sufficient portion for two people.

Halloumi was a leftover piece of cheese, use more if only possible. Halloumi is a soft and salty Cypriot cheese made of goat’s or sheep’s milk and it is an ideal cheese to bake or grill because it doesn’t melt while making it. You can serve it in many ways, but I myself simply prefer it fried.

PORTION: 2 servings
TIME TO MAKE: 20 minutes


  • 8-10 grill bell peppers
  • 8-10 small apple slices
  • honey
  • 8 slices of halloumi
  • olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F)

Open one side of the  bell peppers and remove all the stains. Wash and dry. Spread a small amount of honey inside and put one slice of apple in each bell pepper.

Put them in an oiled baking tray with the slices of halloumi and bake them about 15-20 minutes, or until they are roasted to your taste.
