Mediterranean Breakfast

  • Haloumi Cheese
  • Tahini ‘dip’
  • fresh ripe tomato
  • cucumber
  • parsley
  • couscous
  • stuffed rolled grape leaves – these are available in a can.  Keep one in the refrigerator for whenever the need arises.
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • garlic powder
  • fresh juice (grapefruit or pomegranate)
  • pomegranate seeds
  • pita bread (herbed if available)

Haloumi cheese is really a great addition to many dishes and meals.  I love it plain, but it is unbelievable when cooked in a skillet.  Slice it about 1/4 inch thick and fry on each side until a light golden brown.  It can be used as a meat substitute accompanying eggs, or Tahini, or rolled grape leaves.  Well you get the idea.

Haloumi cheese has a very unique flavor.  It is a goat cheese that I first discovered when in Cyprus.  It is plentiful throughout the Mediterranean region, but may be hard to find in many grocery stores.
