Haloumi + Apple

Hello :) Unfortunately I'm sick at the moment, and am about to commence exams, which I realise is not the perfect combination for cooking or blogging. But I have a warming snack to share today. It's terribly simple! It's the first recipe I've tried from Sarah Wilson's Quit Sugar e-book, which I purchased a little while ago. It's actually the only recipe I've made so far- and plan to make a few more soonish.

Word of warning though: if you're not mad for coconut, do not buy the e-book. She loves using coconut flour, butter, cream, milk and water. Oh, and shredded coconut too. This is because coconut is naturally sweet as well as being super nutritious. Luckily, I'm a huge coconut fan. Cannot get enough. But back to this snack.

"salted caramel" haloumi + apple ...this is a great afternoon snack, or you can serve with some walnuts as a dessert. 

1 green apple
6 slices haloumi cheese (cut 5mm thick) ...(or 7mm, go on, rebel!)
sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

Place the haloumi and apple slices in a hot non-stick pan. Jiggle around the pan a little so the haloumi oil spreads and coats the apple. Cook both sides (until both the apple and haloumi are a lovely caramel colour) Toss cinnamon and salt over the lot and serve.

Mmmmm! The apple could have done with more colour, so next time (read: tomorrow) I'll endeavour to caramelise it more. The apple and cinnamon combination is perfectly sweet and warming, whilst the salty haloumi is generally amazing and adds a punch of protein- great for snacking fun times. Who doesn't love snacking fun times?!
