Ingredients

  • 200g feta
  • 3 tbsp greek yoghurt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into 3cm strips
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500g halloumi, cut into 16 slices
  • 4 brioche burger buns
  • 4 tbsp red pepper pesto (vegetarian if required)
  • 4 handfuls rocket
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 red onion , sliced into rings

Method

Step 1

Prepare the barbecue for cooking.

Step 2

Start by crumbling the feta into a mixing bowl. Add the yoghurt, oregano, lemon zest and juice and season with black pepper. Mix well to make a thick paste.

Step 3

Put the pepper strips into a bowl, drizzle with the olive oil and toss to coat. Once the barbecue flames have died down to hot embers, place the strips on the grill. Cook for 2-3 mins each side, until they just start to soften. Remove from the heat and keep to one side.

Step 4

Pop the buns on the grill cut-side down to lightly toast. Set aside.

Step 5

Next, cook the halloumi slices on the grill for 2 mins each side, then remove.

Step 6

To assemble each burger, spread 1tbsp red pepper pesto on the bottom half of the bun, add a quarter of the pepper strips, then a quarter of the feta mix. Top with four halloumi slices, a handful of rocket, a quarter of the avocado and a couple of rings of red onion, then finally the lid of the bun.
