Since I made these stuffed mushrooms a couple weeks ago, halloumi has been on my mind a lot. I kept coming back to it as if my brain was sending me a clear message: I WANT MORE GRILLED HALOUMI!
Ok brain- I got it. Here's more halloumi for you, paired with avocado and pomegranate molasses and presented to you as my new favourite Tartine recipe.
Does this tartine recipe sound like a weird combination to you? Because, really, I think it's delicious. I already loved the idea when it came up in my head but when I took my first bite, well...I loved it even more. Would you give this tartine recipe a try?
If you're confused about the tartine thing, it's just a fancy (and French) way to say open-faced sandwich. So if we summarize this tartine recipe, we have:
- A toasted slice of crusty bread (yum),
- topped with mashed avocado (yum), and
- melty, grilled halloumi cheese (yum).
- The pomegranate molasses is like the cherry on top, but really, if that scares you, just leave it out. Just know that you're missing out on something BIG. 😉
Tartine is the perfect happy hour snack to nibble on while sipping on a glass of wine. They also make a great appetizer before a large meal. Hey, and what about Sunday brunch, what about midnight munchies.
Yep. There are simply too many great occasions for a crusty slice of bread topped with creamy avocado, grilled cheese and sweet & sour pomegranate molasses!
Have a delicious weekend, friends and make sure to try this delicious Tartine recipe!

Grilled Halloumi, Avocado and Pomegranate Molasses Tartine
Try my Middle Eastern-inspired Tartine, a French open-faced sandwich topped with grilled Halloumi, Avocado and Pomegranate Molasses! This easy yet special tartine recipe is the perfect little bite to offer to guests along with a cool drink.
- 5 oz halloumi cheese 150 g
- 6 slices ciabatta bread or any similar bread
- 1 ripe avocado
- 3 tbsp pomegranate molasses
Start with halloumi. Cut the cheese block into six 0.5 inches (about 1 cm) slices (you'll have leftover halloumi). Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Grill halloumi slices about one minute on each side or until golden brown. Set aside. When halloumi is cool enough to handle, cut each slice into three pieces.
Toast the bread slices. In a small bowl, mash the avocado and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spread 1 heaping tablespoon of mashed avocado on each bread slice. Top with grilled halloumi and drizzle with pomegranate molasses. Serve immediately.
If you have pomegranate juice, you don't need to buy pomegranate molasses. You can easily make your own at home. See this recipe for example.
