1 Inch thick slices of French bread
Olive oil (To brush and drizzle)
Halloumi Cheese (Thinly sliced)
Home made hummus (Recipe given earlier)
Dried herbs (I used dried Basil)
Lightly brush the bread pieces with olive oil and either grill or toast the bread
Grill the Halloumi cheese on a griddle pan
Once the bread is done, top it with cheese and a dollop of hummus and a generous sprinkle of dried herbs. Drizzle some olive oil and serve immediately.
Note: This cannot be made in advance, best served and eaten when warm

Whip cream in a large bowl, until soft peaks form. Take care not to over whip it and turning it into churned butter.
Add the Mascarpone cheese and whip again until smooth, airy and fluffy.
Now add in the maple syrup and fold in with a spatula.
Pour the mixture in an airtight plastic container and freeze for at least 4 hours before eating.
