Prep Time: 10 minutes Servings: 4 Total Time: 15 minutes


Burger Ingredients

  • 1 package halloumi (approx. 600gm…cut into 4 – 8 slices)

  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil or olive oil (for cooking)

  • freshly ground pepper (to taste)

  • 1 – 2 drops Young Living Basil essential oil (to taste)

  • 4 burger buns

Tomato Aioli Ingredients:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey (to taste)

  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 2 drops Young Living Basil essential oil (to taste)

  • 2 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil (to taste)

  • ½ tsp dried basil or a few fresh leaves, finely chopped (optional)

  • ¼ tsp sea salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)

Optional Toppings:

  • tomato slices and/or beetroot slices

  • avocado slices or mashed avo

  • rocket and/or lettuce leaves


1. Make the tomato aioli and set aside before you start cooking the halloumi.

2. In a medium bowl mix all the aioli ingredients together well, taste and add a little more sea salt and basil oil, if desired.

3. Prepare the buns and other toppings before you cook the halloumi so you are ready to serve when they are done cooking. You can prepare the topping a few hours ahead of time and keep chilled until ready to serve.

4. To cook the halloumi, mix with the coconut or olive oil with the basil oil and then heat the oil mixture in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Place the slices of halloumi in the pan, sprinkle with black pepper and cook for approx. 3 minutes on one side. Then carefully turn over and finish cooking for approx. 3 more minutes until golden brown on each side.

5. Serve the burger on buns, bread or lettuce leaves and top with a little tomato aioli and other toppings of choice.

NOTE Cooking time for the halloumi is approx. 5 – 7 minutes depending on how thick you slice the halloumi. You want to sear it on the outside making it a lovely golden brown.
