These are very tasty! This was my first experience with Halloumi and I quite enjoyed it. I was short on parsley and the only other fresh herb I had available was basil so I added a few leaves of that with the parsley. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I cooked my couscous (1/2 c dry w/ 3/4 c water) with a tiny bit of chicken bouillon. Served with lettuce, dressed with Super Simple Tropical Dressing, though I think the suggested spinach & salmon would also be good. Thanks for the recipe!

Only five ingredients! Wow! I added some fresh basil to the mix, too. To flatten the cakes uniformly I utilized my handy tortilla press. Six smaller cakes were formed although a few fell apart when I cooked them. I didn't have quite enough halloumi for the recipe so I subbed a little bit of feta and asiago. Delicious and ~Tasty Dish~ approved! Thanks for posting! Served with a tossed salad, corn on the cob and fresh fruit.

I am a big Haloumi fan. These cakes are very nice and good for a vegetarian meal. I did change the amounts a little because the Haloumi I always buy comes in 250 gram packets and I wanted to use the whole packet. Therefor I increased the couscous by 1/3 cup, some more lemon juice and more parsley. I also chopped the Haloumi before putting it in the food processor. They kept together well whilst frying but you have to handle them with care towards the end of the cooking time.
