Mediterranean feta

That recipe is so simple but so tasty on the other hand that I get hungry by just thinking of it. Somehow it reminds me on mediterranean Italian beaches… I love them, so many beautiful memories are left there…no matter how terrible drivers Italians are 😉


160 g feta, bite size squares
5-6 garlic cloves
5 mini cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup black olives
1 teaspoon oregano
2 table spoons olive oil
salt, pepper

Fill shallow ceramic (cast iron, glass…) pot with feta, garlic cloves, cherry tomatoes and olives. Top with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Bake at 180 C/360 F for about 1/2 hour or till golden brown. Serve with fresh green salad of your choice and white wine.

ps… instead of feta, tofu or chicken could be used. Simply cut feta or chicken breast in a bite size pieces.

Summer is coming closer, but I just needed that ‘escape’, although was just for one dinner.

  7. Cute little lady bugs 😀 That dish looks so good! One looks like it has different topping. Is it breadcrumbs?

    1. One has instead of feta chicken and it is topped with cruble feta. No breadcrumbs sorry 😉 But I am sure that is another great combination to try!!
