This baked feta cheese lunch dish is a creamy and delicious treat. Creamy feta, roasted tomatoes and onion, and black olives. Have with a few extra greek sides and a nice glass of crisp white wine in the evening.
Growing up Greek…
I grew up going to Greece every year when I was younger. So it’s really nostalgic eating and cooking Greek food. It’s possibly one of my favourite cuisines. Simple, wholesome, tasty, healthy food! My family loves greek cuisine and cook it at home regularly so I think it’d rubbed off on me.
So whilst we have a bit more time on our hands to experiment with foods and talk lazier lunch breaks, I am treating us to the odd special, indulgent lunch! Baked Feta cheese Lunch should really be a weekly dish in any home!
Sharing is caring…
Now as we all know, when it comes to me (Bex) I like to share, I don’t want to feel like I’m missing out on tasting different foods, so sharing things is much better as we have the same thing! If you fancy taking having a go at another lunch time-sharing dish take a look at my sharing eggs!
Is it healthy?
So cheese on the whole isn’t one of the healthier food items to go for, feta does contain a lot of good. Compared to a lot of other cheeses it does contain a lot less calories and is much lower in fat. It contains a high amount of vitamin b and calcium and it also contains a lot of great bacteria. I have been looking into gut health and how important it is for you to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. I’ll elaborate on this in a full post soon.
So with no further wait, here’s the delicious dish you’ve been waiting for. Dive straight in…
