It hadn’t occurred to me to bake feta cheese before but this is absolutely delicious served with crusty bread. It still holds it’s shape and the juices are a beautiful red and green color. You will think you are in the Greek Islands as you eat this.
Recipe c/o Vicky Bhogal.
4x 7oz (roughly) blocks of Greek feta cheese. (Don’t use French, as it’s too mild)
Extra virgin olive oil, a generous glug for each foil parcel
2 large garlic cloves, very thinly sliced
1 tsp dried red chili flakes
a handful fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped
4 fresh plum tomatoes chopped
2 tsp tomato puree
a handful capers
half a red onion, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 400F
Create 4 individual foil pouches by tearing off 4 large large strips of foil and placing a block of feta on each with enough foil to wrap over.
Divide the rest of the ingredients between the 4 feta blocks, fold up the foil on each, and bake for 10 mins.
Serve hot with lots of good crusty bread
