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
- Put the lemon, lemon juice, honey and 4 tbsp of water into a pan and simmer slowly.
- Put on a pan of water and add a generous amount of salt. This is the pan the dumplings will be cooked in.
- Mix the suet, flour and 10 tbsp of water to make a dough. If it's too dry add more water. Kneed well.
- Divide the dough into 6 balls and place into the pan of boiling salty water. Boil the dumplings for 15 minutes.
- Slice the halloumi and put a bit of oil in a frying pan and heat it on a medium heat.
- Add the halloumi to the frying pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side, until it's a lovely golden brown.
- 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.
