Tacos are a crowd favorite, but you've likely never had tacos like this. Instead of the usual chicken, pork or fish, Chef David Hart of Sag Harbor's famed Mexican restaurant K Pasa makes beautiful, flavorful vegetarian tacos with coconut black beans and grilled halloumi cheese.
Never heard of halloumi? It's a semi-hard, unripened cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk popular in the Mediterranean.
"Halloumi is normally something that you wouldn't traditionally see grilled, for sure," Hart says. "Halloumi has a high melting point, and it is ideal for hitting the grill. The grill adds an extra layer of texture and robust flavor. We use Halloumi for our Grilled Halloumi Taco—featuring coconut black beans, salsa roja, all piled high on our homemade tortillas."

Want to give this crowd favorite a try? Hart shared the recipe with us step by step, from the coconut black bean base to the salsa rosa and everything between. Please note that this recipe does require some overnight prepataion and about two hours of prep time. It'll be a journey, for sure, but the final plate is well worth the wait!
