Baked Feta Dip with Cherry Tomatoes.
Have you tried the baked feta pasta that took the internet by storm earlier this year? That simple recipe inspired this delicious summer dip, which features some of my very favorite flavors—creamy feta, tangy cherry tomatoes, olives, and plenty of fresh basil.
Baking these ingredients together near the heat source yields maximal flavor. The feta softens and turns golden, the cherry tomatoes burst and naturally sweeten, and the olives become even more intensely olive-y. Swirled together and finished with a generous sprinkle of basil, the combination is sublime.
- Preheat the oven to 180ºC/gas 4.
- Crumble the feta into large chunks, roughly chop some of the tomatoes, leaving the smaller ones whole, then destone the olives.
- Tear the sourdough into chunks, and pick the basil leaves.
- Combine the feta cheese, tomatoes, olives, sourdough, and a splash of oil in a baking tray.
- Season, then pop it into the oven for 30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are tender and the feta is golden at the edges.
- Scatter over the basil and serve.
And that peanut sauce? Absolutely essential to the eating experience. It’s the ultimate wingman to satay, containing all the fragrant notes of lemongrass, coconut, fish sauce, and fresh lime zest.
- Mix your marinade. Add coconut milk, garlic cloves, turmeric, cilantro, brown sugar, fish sauce, and salt to a bowl and stir to combine.
- Place your chicken breast pieces between two pieces of wax paper or plastic wrap, and pound them until they’re nice and thin.
- Drizzle the marinade over your chicken, and let time do the rest!
- Two hours later (or the next day), it’s time to skewer your chicken! If your kids are big enough, this is a fun job for them to help with (just be sure there’s some thorough hand-washing afterward.)
- Grill! About two minutes on each side, depending on how hot your grill is.
Tomato and Pomegranate Salad
Maxed out on boring leftovers? Try changing up your weekday routine with a healthy and hearty garden meal. This pretty-to-look-at, delicious-to-eat salad was inspired by a famous kebab restaurant named Hamdi, near the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul, says Brit chef Yotam Ottolenghi. If you’re pressed for time, buy a container of fresh pomegranate seeds to speed up the prep process.
New Year’s Sparkler
Elevate your typical bubbly with this simple but delicious sparkler. Berry-flavored vodka and pomegranate juice lend their beautiful color and fruity flavor to Champagne, and skewered raspberries help to bring it all together. It’s an easy yet elegant recipe that’s just as perfect for a fancy party as it is for watching the ball drop from the couch.
