Anyone who knows me will know my love of halloumi and my love of Mexican food. This for me is the perfect combination of the two.
Now, I’m normally a sweet breakfast kinda person. Smoothies, porridge, pancakes and so on. However, sometimes you just need something savoury in the mornings – especially at weekends. Normally, I gravitate to Shakshuka or something with tofu but in this case I felt like having something a bit different.
A burrito for breakfast? Why the hell not?! It’s super satisfying for someone who tends to have a big appetite in the mornings. Plus, it contains the two best things in the world: puy lentils and halloumi. I’m salivating right now.
I put a load of chilli in this because I like spicy food however you can tone it down/remove the chilli altogether. Or alternatively, you can put even more chilli in it because although I like spicy food I’m not a fan of making it so spicy my eyes start watering.
If you can’t be bothered to make a wrap then simply buy some wholemeal wraps/tortillas from the supermarket. I just like to make it fresh as it tastes nice but I understand it can be a faff to do. Also, the egg is optional and make sure you do it how you like – fried, poached, scrambled… Whatever floats your boat.
Preheat the oven to 200ºC (180ºC for fan ovens)/gas mark 6.
125g cooked puy lentils
125g halloumi, sliced
4 tablespoons tomato puree
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 green chilli, sliced
salt and pepper
2 eggs (optional, cooked how you prefer)
Spoonful of yoghurt (optional)
120g flour (use whatever you want but a mix of wholemeal and white works well)
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
(or two wholemeal wraps/tortillas)
Mix together all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and put in an oven dish. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, if making the wrap, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in the water and bring together with your hands until a dough forms. Separate this dough into two balls and roll one out into a thin circle. Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the circle of dough for a couple of minutes on each side. Repeat with the other ball of dough.
Place the filling on the wraps with a spoonful of yoghurt and your eggs. Roll and enjoy!
