Halloumi stir fry with Mediterranean vegetables is a tasty, lean meal perfect for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. The soft cheese pairs really well with the crunchy vegetables, making this an untraditional but lovely Greek style stir fry.

Here’s my best tips on how to make the BEST stir fry with halloumi:
- Don’t try to substitute halloumi with any other cheese. It won’t really work in this recipe.
- If you’re using very hard vegetables such as cauliflower or carrots, you might want to stir fry these for a while before adding the other ingredients.
- If you use soft vegetables such as tomatoes, you might want to add these towards the end of the frying time as they cook extra fast.
- You can use a stir fry sauce if you want, but I think this recipe tastes really fresh and flavorful without it. Try adding some balsamic vinegar or sweet chili sauce if you want.
- Stir fries are meant to be cooked on a high heat while you stir the ingredients. If you cook it on low heat, the vegetables will be more steamed than seared.
