Divine Halloumi & Red Onion Pitta Breads

Pssst, you... I have a little secret for you.

That was the feeling I got when I bit into this pitta bread after one helluva long day in work! I felt sneaky, I looked at my boyfriend, it was mutual. This. is. awesome!

Ready? Here goes!

Divine Halloumi & Red Onion Pitta Breads
(Serves 2)

250g Halloumi, sliced thickly (about 8 pieces)
1 large red onion, sliced
2 pitta breads
Juice of 1 lime
3 bay leaves
1/4 tsp allspice
2/3 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil

For the dressing:
5 tbsp Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

- In a pan, start by heating the oil and add the red onions. Fry until they are super soft. Now add the bay leaves, allspice and pepper. Add a little bit more oil if necessary.

- Once the onions are done, add the lime juice - give it a good stir and scoop them to the side of the frying pan. Now add the halloumi slices. Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden. In the meantime, mix the garlic and Greek yogurt and set in a small bowl or ramekin until serving.Toast pitta breads, et voila!

- Take out the bay leaves, divide onions between pita breads, place the halloumi slices on top followed by the garlic dressing. And tuck in!

I hope you have had a nice start to the new month! These last few weeks has been tough, but I am hoping to bounce back over the weekend! Tomorrow it's college, and I am really excited about it!

Take it easy ;)
