Feta Complis

Crispy potatoes, sweet, spicy roast swede, pine nuts and melting feta cheese

This is a store cupboard throw together dish in response to a question about what to do with feta. There are many great recipes with feta - hot and cold. This one takes some of the pairings from the likes of spanakopita and other Greek dishes which team up feta with cured ham or pine nuts, sometimes with some fire - cayenne or chilli and with some sweet - in this case sweet potato and turnip. It's filling and tasty, and has a lovely contrast of flavours: sweet and spicy roast veg against salty feta, prosciutto and oregano, and contrasting textures: crispy fried potatoes, pine nuts and soft roast veg and melting feta.

  • Heat oil in a hot frying pan

  • Add the potatoes and shallots. Stir

  • Add the garlic, rosemary and some salt. Stir and turn the heat down
