This tasty and simple to make Grilled Halloumi Flatbread is just 6 SmartPoints on Weight Watchers Freestyle / Flex plan. It makes a satisfying, light and summery Weight Watchers lunch that can be thrown together in less than 15 minutes!
Halloumi (or squeaky cheese as a friend calls it!) is one of my favourite cheeses. I love the texture, its robustness and the deep salty flavour.
And grilled Halloumi is just perfection!
The full fat version works out at about 12 SmartPoints per 100g, whereas the light version works out at 8 SmartPoints (depending on the brand).
I used the light version in this recipe as, once grilled, I find it difficult to tell the difference between the full fat and light version. So, like any sane cheese lover, I decided I would rather have more cheese for my points than go with the higher point version.
