Fried Halloumi with Red Lentils and Veggies

Halloumi is a traditional Greek type of cheese, made from a mixture of goat, sheep, and sometimes cow milk. If you want to obtain something good out of it, cook it on the stove, with a bit of olive oil, and serve it in a light salad, with lentils, red onion, bell pepper, and a few other surprises.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
