Halloumi, Baby Spinach Pita Wrap

halloumi pita

Not sure if this qualifies as a “recipe”. It’s really easy and very tasty. All you need is some greek style pita bread, some halloumi cheese, fresh baby spinach and vegetable oil for frying. I prefer olive oil but avoid if you find it too strong.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the halloumi slices over a medium heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden and slightly soft inside. Warm up the pita bread. You can do it in the oven or over medium heat in a frying pan.

Add the sliced halloumi and some spinach leaves in the pita bread, wrap, and enjoy!
