Slow Cooker Halloumi Bake

Slow Cooker Halloumi Bake

As you might have seen from my recent recipes for spicy bean stew and cumin, parsnip and apple soup, I am on a mission to increase my vegetable intake and make healthier choices. Halloumi is something I am rather addicted to, a cafe near my work sells amazing halloumi and flatbread salads which I love. So I wanted to make a dish in my slow cooker including halloumi and plenty of vegetables. A slow cooker halloumi bake of some kind seemed to be in order.

I decided to make a slow cooker halloumi and sweet potato bake with plenty of peppers and tomatoes. I haven’t made a vegetable bake in my slow cooker before, so this was a bit of an experiment.

Layering up the vegetables in the slow cooker, I used the slices of sweet potato as if they were sheets of lasagne, great if you are cutting down on white carbs.

Slow Cooker Halloumi and Sweet Potato Bake

On top of the layer of sweet potato goes a layer of the tomatoes and peppers, with halloumi in the centre.

For the final layer of the slow cooker halloumi bake, the sweet potato layer is topped with sliced tomatoes, herbs and halloumi slices. It’s then as simple as letting it all bake through for that cheesy halloumi goodness!

Once baked the sweet potato and vegetables are soft and fragrant from the herbs and the halloumi melts through. It’s a great vegetarian slow cooker option and also good if you are looking for a light meal.

The halloumi bake is delicious served with salad as a light meal or supper, and any leftovers will be great for lunch, even cold.

Yum, yum, yum. Sweet potato and halloumi are two of my favourite things but you know I’ve never tried them together before.

This looks fab.

Halloumi in a slow cooker. Woman, you’re a genius.

Take it your bake worked then Lucy? You’re really pushing the boundaries on slow cooking. As a fellow halloumi addict, this sounds delicious.

OMG! This looks good. I love sweet potatoes and haloumi, but never thought to try them together like this.
