Haloumi with chorizo and tomatoes recipe

This haloumi is pan-fried and topped with a combination of spicy chorizo sausage and cherry tomatoes. This is a perfect weekend brunch and a great light meal for supper.



  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 chorizo sausages, sliced
  • 1 cup ripe, sweet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 400g haloumi, sliced
  • 1 handful basil leaves


Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the chorizo and tomatoes. Cook until coloured, stirring often.

Remove the tomatoes from the pan with a slotted spoon, taking care to leave the oil in the pan. Set aside in a warm place.

Reheat the pan and fry the haloumi for a few minutes on each side until golden.

Remove the haloumi to a plate and top with chorizo, tomatoes and fresh basil leaves.


  • You could serve this with warm bread rolls or pile this mixture on top of some linguine.
  • It would also be great sitting on a bed of baby spinach or new season rocket.
