Mushroom, Houmous And Halloumi Pittas

Servings 2


  • 1 tub of shop-bought houmous
  • 3-4 large flat field mushrooms
  • Halloumi
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • 2-3 pitta breads


  • Peel and slice the mushrooms.
  • Cut the halloumi into thick slices.
  • Heat a small knob of butter and 1 tbsp olive oil in one frying pan and 1 tbsp olive oil in a second frying pan. (If you only have one frying pan cook the mushrooms first and keep them warm.)
  • Once they are hot, add the mushrooms to the pan with the butter and oil and the halloumi to the other pan.
  • Fry the mushrooms until they are cooked and the hallomi until it is lightly browned on both sides.
  • In the meantime heat the pitta bread in a toaster or under the grill.
  • I serve everything on the table so we can put our own pockets together: Cut the pitta bread in half to make a pocket and stuff it with houmous, fried mushrooms and halloumi. Messy but good!
