Roasted feta with tomatoes and olives

Slices of feta grilled in the oven for an aperitif or as a mezze

Feta is a bit of my favorite cheese of the summer season, I eat a lot of it because I find it goes wonderfully with raw vegetables and all the whole salads that I prepare for myself when it’s hot.

I had not yet tried to put it in the oven and it was when I saw a photo on Pinterest that I let myself be tempted. I made a quick little dish with cherry tomatoes, olives and lots of fresh herbs, a nice swig of olive oil and presto, in the oven. The result is a melting, almost sticky feta to be enjoyed spread on a nice slice of bread: a treat!



  • Preheat your oven to 180 ° C. Place the feta on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Arrange the cherry tomatoes and olives around.
  • Add the lemon zest, the pressed garlic cloves, the chopped basil, salt and pepper generously. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil before baking for 30 minutes.
