A traditional Greek soup, Smoky Tomato & Halloumi Bake is made from salty flat yogurt that contains an abundance of vitamins and calcium, as well as high amounts of probiotics and live cultures (lactobacillus acidophilus). This is the same probiotic compound that is used in the production of Acidophilus but in lesser quantities as it can be quite expensive to grow these types of bacteria in large enough quantities. But in Smoky Tomato & Halloumi Bake, the bacteria are brought to the boil where they are able to merge with the yogurt producing a wonderfully thick and creamy soup – the perfect amount of cheesy goodness.

Ingredients

  • Olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced

  • A few pinches of chili flakes, to taste

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/4 tsp red wine vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar

  • 400g (14oz) tin of white beans (I used butter beans, but cannellini beans or chickpeas work well too)

  • 800g (28oz) of whole plum tinned tomatoes (that’s two normal sized tins)

  • 500g (8.8oz) of halloumi cheese, sliced lengthways and then widthways into slabs

  • Parsley or coriander, to garnish (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 200C / 390F. In a shallow casserole dish, heat some olive oil and gently saute your sliced garlic until it’s starting to brown.
  • Add the smoked paprika and oregano and stir for a moment until fragrant, then add the tomatoes, sugar and red wine vinegar.
  • Stir the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse the butter beans, then add to the sauce.
  • Remove from the heat and arrange the halloumi on top of the sauce.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes until bubbling. If you want to get the halloumi browned on top, turn on the grill / broiler for the last 5 minutes.
