Who doesn’t like feta but have you ever had it baked? If you haven’t you need to give it a go, it takes it to the next level!!
It’s a wicked little side dish or lunch. It’s Soooooo good, make sure you have some bread for mopping up all the goodness.
1 block of feta.
400 g tin of chopped tomatoes.
2 tbsps of extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra.
Red wine vinegar.
1 tsp of dried oregano, plus extra.
8 mixed olives.
Chilli flakes, to taste.
1 small red onion, finely sliced.
1 tsp caster sugar.
In an ovenproof dish add the tomatoes, the 2 tbsp of oil, 1 tbsp of the vinegar, the oregano then season with salt and pepper and mix well.
Sit the feta on top, arrange the olives around it, drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and bake in a preheated oven set at 180℃ for 15 minutes.
Whilst that's in the oven make a very quick pickle. In a bowl add the sliced onion and pour in enough vinegar to just cover them. Add a pinch of salt and the sugar and mix well. Have a little taste and if it's too tart add a little more sugar.
Once the feta is done take out of the oven, sprinkle with some extra oregano, chilli flakes to taste and top with the pickled onions.
