This is a really nice halloumi stew with red lentils. I used a Swedish halloumi and one Akkawi. Akkawi is very similar to halloumi, and it origintates from Palestine. It takes about 30 minutes to cook the stew, and you can eat it like it is or serve with some rice and a salad.
Lentil soup is easy to make, and you can add so many different things to it. In this recipe I really like the taste of coconut milk in it. It gives a really nice flavour to the soup.
