We love Halloumi and wouldn’t say no to try halloumokeftedes. While in Greece you will find such patties made with their own famous cheese, feta, I feel that the milder taste of goat halloumi goes better with the rest of the ingredients for a summery snack. Serve as a meze with red pepper sauce.

Place in a large glass bowl the milk along with the eggs and start whisking. Slowly add in the flour while whisking until well combined.
Next add to the milk mixture the Halloumi, peas and courgettes, the scallions, mint and lemon zest and season with the salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
To make the halloumokeftedes in batches take a large frying pan and place on medium heat. When hot add some of the oil, allow to heat up and use a large spoon to get spoonful of the mixture and place in the pan, about 5 at a time.
Cook them until golden brown which is about 3’ per side and repeat the process for the remaining mixture.
Serve next to the pepper sauce for dipping and keep some lemon juice on the side for extra acidity if someone wants to.
