  8. Place the vegetables on the hot grill and reduce heat to medium-low.
  9. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  10. When the vegetables are nearly done, put the cheese slices on the grill and barbecue for 1 minute per side.
  11. On 4 plates, assemble the stacks by layering, in order, 1 eggplant slice, 1 wedge of red pepper, 1 wedge of yellow pepper, another eggplant slice and finally a cheese slice.

Haloumi cheese does not melt when heated. In Quebec you can find Doré-mi, a delicious cheese of the same type.
