Halloumi 'bacon'

This recipe is very simple, but there’s something about it that can make you animalistic. Seasoned with smoked paprika and the powdered umami that is nutritional yeast, its savoury flavours enhance everything it touches.
Servings: 4 portions


  • ½ pack halloumi thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed rapeseed oil or chilli oil


  • Mix the nutritional yeast and paprika with about 2 tablespoons oil on a flat plate. Coat the halloumi slices and marinate for 20 minutes.When you’re ready to serve, heat a heavy frying pan over medium heat until hot and fry the slices until lightly browned on both sides.Return to the marinade-covered plate, rub over the remaining seasoning and serve immediately.
