JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Recipe Request

I posted this photo ......



......on Instagram last week and had numerous requests for the recipe so without further ado I give you......

HALOUMI AND PEA FRITTERS WITH TOMATO SALAD

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups (240g) frozen peas, thawed
250g Haloumi, coarsely grated
2 eggs lightly whisked
½ cup (75g) Self-raising flour
⅓ cup (80ml) milk
2 ½ tablespoons olive oil
350g mixed medley tomatoes, halved or thinly sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup mint leaves, coarsely shredded
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Greek-style yoghurt, to serve
Lemon wedges, to serve

METHOD:
  1. Place the peas in a bowl.  Use a fork to mash until coarsely crushed.  Stir in the haloumi and egg.  Add the flour and milk and stir until combined.  Season.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan over medium heat pour three ¼-cupfuls of pea mixture around the pan, allowing room for spreading.  Cook for 2 minutes or until golden.  Turn.  Cook for further 2 minutes or until golden and cooked through.  Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.  Cover with foil to keep warm.  Repeat in 3 more batches with remaining pea mixture.
  3. Combine the tomato onion mint and pine nuts in a bowl.  Add vinegar and remaining oil.  Season.  Toss to combine.
  4. Divide the fritters and salad among serving plates.  Serve with yoghurt and lemon wedges.


Serves 4 but as they are just as nice eaten cold, make the whole batch for yourself!
