Servings: 2 generous servings
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons finely minced ginger
- 2 teaspoons dried mint
- 2 cups cooked chickpeas (unsalted)
- 1 cup tomato sauce (unsalted)
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, whole (or other small tomatoes)
- 150 grams feta cheese, in a block (Use Macedonian, Greek, or Bulgarian)
- drizzle olive oil
- pinch dried mint
Optionally, for garnish
- 2 tablespoons finely minced green onion
- 50 grams feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In an oven-safe dish, add the olive oil, ginger, and mint and mix well. Add in the chickpeas and stir to coat them in the oil and seasonings. Stir in the tomato sauce and tomatoes.
Place the feta block in the middle of the dish and drizzle it with a bit of olive oil. Scatter on a pinch of dried mint.
Bake for 30 minutes until the tomatoes are softened and browned, and the feta is browning around the edges.
Remove from the oven and use a spoon to break the feta apart. Stir the feta into the chickpeas and tomatoes.
Optionally, garnish with chopped green onions and more feta.
Storage and Reheating
You can store this in a well-sealed container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat at 275F for about 12-15 minutes, or until hot.
