I can’t take credit for this recipe, since it is actually one my Mum made while I was growing up. It came about when she first starting growing her own vegetables, and so would have abundant amounts of a particular vegetable each season which we had to find interesting ways to use up. For example - broad beans and courgette season! Obviously this can be made from fresh or frozen broad beans and will be equally tasty. The salty melted halloumi pairs beautifully with the fresh and crunchy broad beans. It’s simple, fresh, seasonable eating at its very best - I hope you enjoy.
