Recipes - Haloumi and Chargrilled Zucchini Bruschetta

Haloumi and zucchini are a match made in foodie heaven.  So I put them together on some bruschetta.  This is quick to throw together, tastes amazing and will make you super popular when you serve it to your friends...if you can bear to let other people eat them.

250g haloumi, sliced thinly
2 zucchini, cut into thin slices lengthwise
1 tbs oregano, finely chopped
1/4 lemon, juiced
1 baguette, sliced on a diagonal
1-2 cloves garlic
olive oil, to drizzle
salt and pepper, to season

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 230°C.  Place baguette slices on a tray and bake for 7-8 minutes, turning once.  Remove from oven and rub each slice with garlic clove. Set aside.
Step 2 - Heat a grill pan over high heat.  Season zucchini slices with salt and cook for 1-2 minutes each side until cooked through and charred.  Remove from pan and cook haloumi for 1-2 minutes each side until golden.
Step 3 - To assemble, place bread on a serving plate and layer zucchini and haloumi.  Sprinkle with oregano, squeeze lemon juice, drizzle olive oil and season with pepper.  Serve warm.
