I honestly wish I’d thought of saag halloumi myself. One of the main issues with paneer is it’s blandness. Halloumi on the other hand is almost too flavoursome, bearing its brazen salinity. It seems a perfect candidate to temper all that salt with a bag of spinach and some sweet cherry tomatoes.
I knew I had to make this recipe for Cauliflower Cheese Filo Pie. I had a packet of filo pastry in the freezer and a sad looking cauliflower leftover from last week’s vegetable box. On top of that, two friend’s sent me screenshots of the finished product on Yotam’s instagram. Impossibly golden and appetising.
Poached eggs, lukewarm yoghurt and a faintly spicy butter. I cannot stress how much nicer the Turkish Eggs is than the sum of its parts. Who can argue against alchemy before noon. Where Doherty fries diced chorizo to give the butter it’s ruby hue, Nigella eschews the delicious meat in favour of browning the butter.
