With vegetarian meals that taste this good, why eat meat?

You typically make this dish with Feta cheese, but all soft cheeses should be avoided during pregnancy unless they are pasturized.

Here’s an alternative – we love Halloumi, the pasteurized Greek goat and sheep cheese for grilling. If you can’t find pasteurized feta, or if you just want a change, substitute the feta for Halloumi. Go to www.mtvikos.com to find a store in your area where you can purchase it.
