This is a simple recipe for roast vegetables with feta and pine nuts that works well as a mezze/side dish. Sometimes we have it with grilled flat breads for dinner with Hummus and various other dips. It is great for entertaining too and the kind of thing I like to put out for friends sometimes as a starter.
I love cheese, and feta is one of my favourites. I like to use it in a variety of recipes and a variety of ways. This has to be a favourite because it is so simple but it delivers big on flavour. I also love that it looks so vibrant and pretty too.
You can also use a variety of herbs and veg in this recipe. I like to use mint, thyme and parsley. For veg I love mixed peppers and aubergines.
BTW I realise it has been a while. I have taken a step back from social media and the internet in general and spent time working on myself and understanding what I need. There have been things going on too and I wanted to move away from all the noise out there and take some time to just take stock. I am thinking about writing up some reflections but I feel like I am already kinda struggling to find the time to get everything done in my day. So lets see how that goes!
