SWEETCORN AND HALLOUMI PITAS
A perfect starter, afternoon snack or lunch, these creamy, cheesy, tangy pitas were an absolute hit with my family. The recipe is based on the corn and halloumi pita recipe in Neil Roake’s latest recipe book – More Life is a Beach Cottage, my absolute favorite cookbook at the moment. Do yourself a favor and get your hands on a copy – the recipes are simple and delicious and the photos are gorgeous!

- Slice a ‘pocket’ in the pita bread, leaving a sealed edge. Brush with a bit of olive oil.
- Grate halloumi and mozzarella, mix with the sweetcorn, and lemon zest in a large bowl.
- Chop up a couple of jalapeños – depending on the spiciness you’re happy with! Add to the bowl and mix in.
