Halloumi Beef Kofta


Halloumi Beef Kofta – These kofta turned out seriously delicious!  The halloumi and zucchini made them lovely and moist in the middle. These would make a great addition to lunchboxes! Yum!

Suitable for 12 months up and freezable.

Update: 30th March 2017. My toddlers finished all the koftas on their plate but didnt touch the tabouleh, so I gave them half a pita bread and they ate them all.

I served them with homemade tabouleh, store bought pita bread, homemade tatziki and ate them like a kebab.




  • 500g organic ground beef (or lamb)
  • 1 pack halloumi 150g (grated)
  • a large bunch of flat parsley (chopped)
  • 2 large garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1 medium yellow onion (grated)
  • 1/4 cup cooked cous cous (leave to cool)
  • 1 small or 1/2 large zucchini (grated)
  • salt & pepper (optional)
  • juice of 1/2 large lemon
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 coriander powder



  1. Put grated zucchini and onion and sprinkle a little salt on them in a bowl, this will draw out the water in them. Leave them for a minute then squeeze them between your hands a few times to remove the water.
  2. Add the rest of your ingredients and mix well. Then roll them into your desired shape.
  3. Fry in olive oil over medium heat.
    Serve with tabouleh, pita bread and tzatziki. Yum!
