The next time your meal is tasting somewhat lack-lustre, sprinkle some feta cheese over the top if you love it’s salty texture. Just a few cubes of this delicious cheese is bound to have your taste buds yearning for more, and create a taste sensation!
Try just some of the following snacks if you want something savoury throughout the day.
Cucumber feta bites
There’s no denying that cucumber and feta cheese are a match made in heaven, so create these delicious crackers the next time you’re in need of a quick snack.
Use a chopped cucumber as a base, a spoonful of Greek yoghurt for the filling, then top-off with some walnuts for added protein. Serve with a lemon slice for extra zest!
Feel free to slice a cucumber, add the yoghurt and walnuts instead, then roll-up with a toothpick as a tasty appetiser.
Spinach feta grilled cheese
Bring a little life to your toastie by substituting that yellow cheese for some feta instead. Add a few baby spinach leaves in your focaccia, then grill for 2-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Feta and scrambled eggs
Not only are eggs delicious at any time of the day, but they are packed with protein to keep your tummy full (and hopefully snack-free). Add some crumbled feta cheese into your eggs and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Enjoy with a side of leafy greens and kale for a healthy, guilt-free meal.
Instead of using mozzarella cheese on your next pizza, add some feta instead. The saltiness of the feta cheese is a match made in heaven with capsicum (especially red), and the smell is amazing!
Watermelon feta salad
Bring some life to your watermelon by seasoning with mint, sliced red onion, and crumbled feta cheese. The sweet and savoury flavour are delicious, and ideally made for the warmer months of the year.
