Lunch: Stuffed Mushrooms and Haloumi

This was one of those “look in the fridge and throw random items in a frying pan” meals. I wasn’t really paying attention, so it’s a bit vague on measurements and timing.

Stuffed Mushrooms and Haloumi


  • 2 1cm thick slices of haloumi cheese
  • 2 chestnut mushrooms (or any biggish mushroom)
  • 2-3 grape tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • About 2-3cm wide slice of red capsicum, thinly sliced
  • Basil, oregano and pepper to taste
  • Fresh Parmesan
  • Small amount of oil for frying


  1. Fry the haloumi and mushroom on a medium heat until haloumi is light brown on one side
  2. Turn the haloumi and the mushroom over and ad the tomato and capsicum to the frying pan. Sprinkle tomato and capsicum with oregano, basil and pepper and fry until haloumi is light brown on other side
  3. Fill the mushrooms with the tomato and capsicum mix and top with some shaved parmesan
