What is Halloumi?
According to Wikipedia Halloumi “is a semi-hard, unripened, brined cheese made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk, and sometimes also cow’s milk.” There are many Halloumi recipes out there, you just need to know which recipes work best for you. I personally love Halloumi fries, they are my favorite! It’s also important to note that Halloumi is a great source of calcium and very high protein but also high in fat.
