3. Heat up a frying pan to a high heat. Chop the beans into 1-2cm lengths. Quickly fry with a little olive with the sliced garlic until the beans have char marks, but still crunchy, set aside. 
4.Chop up the tomatoes and finely chop the parsley.
5. When the bulghur wheat is tender, fluff up with a fork then mix through the beans, tomatoes and parsley. Dress the salad with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.
6.The halloumi: Heat the frying pan up again to a high heat with 2-3T of olive oil.  Fry the halloumi for a minute on each side until crispy and golden.
7.To finish: Serve the beautiful halloumi in wraps, pita pockets or on its own with a big spoonful of tabbouleh and a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream.
8.  Serve, Eat, Enjoy!
