This zucchini haloumi slice is seriously tasty! I took it to work with a small side salad and some greek yoghurt to dollop on top and everyone around me was pretty jealous of my lunch. I like that the addition of the spelt flour makes it almost cake like rather than your normal quiche, and I’ll never say no to haloumi!

It keeps well in the fridge for a few days so it’s another excellent Sunday afternoon dish that will see you through a few days of work lunches. Other than the arm workout you get from all the grating it’s very simple to make as well!

    Wow this looks extremely tasty. Seems like a much better choice than buying breakfast from a cafe.

    Totally love the addition of haloumi, I too often want something a little different from the basic wraps and salads for lunch and this does look great.
