honey baked feta with za’atar, tomatoes and chickpeas

I definitely 100% have nicked this recipe from someone else. I read it on Instagram the other day and it sounded so delicious that I had to make it. Since then, I have unfortunately ENTIRELY FORGOTTEN who did it first. I'm not a fan of publishing dishes others have created without crediting them, so if you have created this wonder, please message me and you'll get the credit you deserve!! It is unbelievable; a warm dip/stew that forms the addictive trifecta of salty/sweet/garlicky. Heaven and embarrassingly easy to throw together.

Ingredients
 

  • 0.5 block of feta
  • runny honey
  • za'atar
  • 1 garlic clove peeled and roughly chopped
  • 0.5 can chickpeas drained
  • 0.5 punnet cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • wholemea pitta for dipping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 200C. In a deep glass dish place your feta in the centre, and surround with the chickpeas, garlic and tomatoes. Cover everything generously with za'atar and a good grind of pepper.
  • Roast for 20 minutes, then drizzle over a few tablespoons of honey. Pop back in the oven for a further 10 minutes.
  • You're ready to serve! The tomatoes will give up lots of their juice, so break apart the feta and swirl everything together. Ideal for scooping up with warm pitta.
