Halloumi Aubergine Burgers with Harissa Relish

This was a lovey vegetarian 'burger'. I am always on the look out for vegetarian meals that I can easily make and that are quick. This used up the end of a block of halloumi, and the last bit of an aubergine. I loved the hot relish too, it added a lovely spicy element to the dish.

Halloumi Aubergine Burgers with Harissa Relish (from Good Food Magazine June 2012)
(Serves 4)

1 tbsp oil
2 onions, very finely sliced
cooking spray
½ aubergine, cut into 8 round slices
250g block halloumi cheese, cut into 8 slices
1 tbsp soft brown sugar
1 roasted red pepper from a jar, chopped
2 tsp harissa
4 wholemeal rolls, halved and lightly toasted
4 tbsp hummus
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and tip in the onions. Cook over a high heat for a few mins, then turn down the heat and cook until soft and golden, about 8 mins.

Meanwhile, spray the aubergine with cooking spray and heat a griddle pan. Griddle the aubergine for a few mins on each side until tender and slightly charred. Set aside. Griddle the halloumi until golden.
Tip the brown sugar, pepper and harissa into the onions. Cook for 1 min until the sugar has melted. While the relish is cooking, spread the rolls with hummus, laying halloumi and aubergine slices on top. Spoon the relish over and serve.
