Halloumi Courgette & Herb Cake

Halloumi Courgette & Herb Cake

I had cooked several recipes of Chef Gordon Ramsay and on both occasions we loved it and it was definitely a success, first was this Slowly Braised Oxtail and another was this Pork and Prawn Balls in Aromatic Sauce. Both dishes hit the bull’s-eye of our taste buds and we definitely enjoyed them hence I am making another recipe from one of his TV Shows, the Halloumi Courgette & Herb Cake.

This dish is a simple mix of courgettes, carrots and halloumi and trust me they work well together, the courgettes gives it a nice slimy texture, the cheese gives it a robust flavour and the carrots give it some sweetness and the combination is just phenomenal. You can eat it on its own dipped in sweet chilli sauce or pair it with something light like a fish. For me it’s totally addictive and I love the flavour profile so this will be repeated a lot of times.

For the recipe I did adapted it a bit but the essence remains the same, so here you go my own adaptation of Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Halloumi Courgette & Herb Cake.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6 cakes
  • 3 pcs carrots, grated

  • 200g halloumi cheese, grated
  • handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 pcs eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • oil
  1. In a bowl combine carrots, courgettes and around 2 tsp of salt. Set is aside for 20 minutes then squeeze mixture to drain excess liquid.
  2. Now combine the remaining ingredients except the oil then season to your liking (remember haloumi is already salty).
  3. Form into large cakes then leave in the fridge for around 30 minutes to firm up.
  4. Place oil in a pan then pan fry cakes for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown in medium heat.
  5. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.

  1. Yes, these do look good Raymund – will give them a try when zucchini are in season down here – thanks for sharing.

  2. Alex says:

    Great idea – it kind of reminds me of a mix between a spring roll and and an omelette. Looks great!

  3. Tessa says:

    Looks fantastic! Now I need to find some halloumi cheese… If i can’t, is there a possible substitute?

    • Raymund says:

      Tessa I am not sure if there is a substitute as this cheese is quite unique, its a cooking cheese and it does hold its shape when cooked that its why the most popular method of serving this is grilling. It nearly the same as mozarella as its string when heat is applied but this one holds its shape.

      • Tessa says:

        Interesting! I will definitely be on the lookout for this cheese. Hopefully Trader Joe’s or maybe Costco carries it. I really want to try this recipe. Thanks Raymund!

  4. I love halloumi in almost anything. These sound tasty.

    These savory cakes/patties look delicious Raymund…I like the idea of pairing halloumi cheese and zucchini…yum!
    Enjoy your week 😀

  7. I am a massive haloumi fan.. never thought to make zucchini and haloumi cakes before. Awesome recipe!

  8. Carolyn Chan says:

    YUM ! I think the combination of salt from the cheese, sweetness from the carrot would work well. And the courgette and breadcrumbs would help to bind everything together. Delish !

    I’ve never tried any of G. Ramsey’s recipes but now you have thinking I should take a look. The courgette cakes look like something I’d love.
