Greek Halvas

This is a very simple recipe made of semolina (like a cream of wheat), sugar, and a little oil. It is simple and sweet, and usually blanched almonds or pine nuts are added, but here I used chopped walnuts.

There are two types of halvas, this one made with semolina and another one made from sesame seeds and sometimes cocoa. It is very common in greek culture and quite filling too.
