Halloumi Corn Bites: (makes 12; can be easily doubled)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces halloumi, grated
  • 1 cup corn kernels – either frozen and thawed or cut from 2 ears of corn
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Pour about 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil into 12 mini muffin tin wells – heat for 5 minutes.

While the oil is heating combine the halloumi, corn, egg, flour, baking powder, salt, lemon zest and chives in a medium bowl.

Remove the tin from the oven and evenly scoop the mixture into the wells. Bake till golden brown, about 10 – 12 minutes. Let cool in the tin for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.

Scoop the avocado into a food processor and add the sour cream, lemon juice, parsley and garlic powder. Blend till smooth and serve with the bites.
