Stuffed peppers with homemade halloumi
I made my own halloumi the night before using the Big Cheese Making Kit - the result was much tastier than shop bought halloumi and is a great way to impress your guests. I couldn’t believe 4 bottles of gold top milk made so much halloumi (at least a kilogram)! I had to give a lot away but I’ll be making more batches to give as gifts now I know how to do it.

These stuffed peppers are good as a starter or side if you're having Mediterranean food and only take 30 mins total.
