GREEK BAKED FETA
I love to recreate recipes from my holidays. A few simple ingredients can transport you back to that beach, mountain, restaurant, or in this case, taverna.
Baked feta with tomatoes is my latest Greek dish, and its so easy to make that we’ll be enjoying it all summer. It’s great with barbecued meat, as a side dish, or as the main feature in a vegetarian meal.

Feta is low in fat so it won’t wreck your diet. It’s also low in lactose, so it may suit those who have to avoid other cheeses. Baked feta is delicious, meltingly soft and creamy in the middle, so it’s well worth a try, even if you’re not that keen on cold feta.

The first time I made this we repeated it several times within a week, and it is still on the weekly menu as we love it so much. I suspect we’ll keep making it through the winter months to keep those memories of summer fresh.

In this Greek baked feta, a few simple, readily available ingredients all come together to make a glorious whole. The classic rich, sweet flavours of the baked tomato and garlic contrast well with the salty, sharp feta. It really is a fuss-free dish – impressive but quick and easy to make, with very little effort. That canned tomato also counts towards your 5 a day. Enjoy it as a weeknight supper with crusty bread or a bowl of my Greek lemon potatoes, as well as a bowl of salad.

HOW TO MAKE BAKED FETA & TOMATOES WITH GARLIC
The ingredients for baked feta, taken from above.
Step one – Assemble the ingredients for your baked feta. As with any dish using canned tomatoes, I find that spending a little more makes a great difference. There’s no need to fork out on a premium brand, but getting something better than supermarket own-brand basics makes for a much more flavoursome dish.

Step two – Preheat the oven to 200°C / 180°C (Fan) / Gas Mark 6. Slice the garlic. Add the tomatoes, garlic, and tomato puree to a 20 cm/8″ ovenproof dish.

Step three – Quarter the cherry tomatoes and slice the olives. Top the tinned tomato with the feta, cherry tomatoes and olives, adding the olive oil and herbs last. Add a generous sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper.

Step four – Bake for 25 minutes. You want the cheese turning creamy in the middle and starting to go golden on the outside. When it’s done, garnish the baked feta with more fresh herbs, and serve immediately. Don’t leave it in longer once you have the right consistency, as this can turn the cheese rubbery.

HINTS AND TIPS
Use good tinned tomatoes. We have often found that the cheapest ones can be watery, and you want to avoid that.
Greek oregano is very different from most of the oregano sold in the UK. To get an approximation of that authentic flavour, I use a mixture of thyme and oregano.
Use pitted olives – it saves a lot of time!
Try using capers instead of olives for a change. They can be very salty, so rinse them first – there is plenty of salt in the feta.
To add a hit of heat to your baked feta, add dried chilli flakes or slices of fresh chilli.
Serve with pasta for a topping with a difference.
Serve in individual ramekins as a smart-looking appetizer or side dish.

Ingredients
1/5 can tomatoes
4 tsp tomato puree
3 clove garlic
5 packet feta cheese ((200g))
9 cherry tomatoes
3 tbsp olives ((pitted))
4 tbsp olive oil ((extra virgin))
2 sprig oregano
4 sprig thyme
Instructions
Heat oven to 200°C / 180°C (Fan) / Gas Mark 6. In an 8″ (20 cm) ovenproof dish, mix the tinned tomatoes and tomato puree. Slice the garlic clove and stir in.
Cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters, and slice the olives.
Layer the feta, cherry tomatoes, and olives on top of the tomato and garlic mixture. Top with the olive oil and herbs.
Bake for 25 minutes, until the tomatoes have cooked through. Serve immediately.
Notes
Greek oregano is very different from British oregano, so I use a mixture of oregano and thyme. If you have Greek oregano, use that instead.
It’s quicker and easier to use pitted olives. Keep any leftover olives in the freezer for next time.
Try using capers instead of olives. Rinse them first, as they can be very salty.
For a kick of heat, add some chilli flakes or slices of fresh chillies to the tinned tomatoes.
Serve with pasta for a topping with a difference.
Make in individual ramekins to serve as an attractive appetizer or side dish.
