Lemon and Honey Halloumi with Dumplings

Lemon and honey is a combination which I find almost irresistable so I couldn't help myself with this recipe. The sharp and sweet complement the halloumi very well. A good dish to remind yourself of sunny summer days.


  • 1 Lemon, sliced and cut into quarter slices

  • 4 tbsp lemon juice

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 4 tbsp water

  • 125g vegetarian suet

  • 250g self raising flour

  • 10 tbsp water, maybe more

  • 1 block of halloumi

  • 3 tomatoes, sliced



  1. Put the lemon, lemon juice, honey and 4 tbsp of water into a pan and simmer slowly.

  2. Put on a pan of water and add a generous amount of salt. This is the pan the dumplings will be cooked in.

  3. Mix the suet, flour and 10 tbsp of water to make a dough. If it's too dry add more water. Kneed well.

  4. Divide the dough into 6 balls and place into the pan of boiling salty water. Boil the dumplings for 15 minutes.

  5. Slice the halloumi and put a bit of oil in a frying pan and heat it on a medium heat.

  6. Add the halloumi to the frying pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side, until it's a lovely golden brown.

  7. The dumplings and the lemon and honey sauce should both be ready now. Serve with the tomatoes and the lemon and honey sauce in a jug.

Serves 2 to 3.
