I recently stumbled upon some amazing recipes that feature zucchini and feta cheese. Being a fan of both ingredients, I couldn’t resist trying out these delicious dishes. I had such a great experience and I just had to share it with you.
First up, we have Baked Zucchini, Feta and Quinoa Bites. These little bites are perfect for a quick and easy snack or appetizer. To start, preheat your oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating up, prepare your ingredients. You’ll need shredded zucchini, cooked quinoa, crumbled feta cheese, eggs, breadcrumbs, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, mix together the shredded zucchini, cooked quinoa, crumbled feta cheese, eggs, breadcrumbs, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Once everything is well combined, scoop the mixture into a greased mini muffin tin, filling each muffin cup about ¾ full. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
To serve, let the bites cool for a few minutes before gently running a knife around the edges of the muffin cups to loosen. Carefully remove the bites and place them on a serving platter. Sprinkle with some additional crumbled feta cheese and garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.
Next on the list, we have Greek-Style Roasted Zucchini with Feta Cheese. This dish is bursting with flavors and is perfect as a side dish or a light lunch. To start, preheat your oven to 425°F. While the oven is heating up, prepare your ingredients. You’ll need zucchini, olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, crumbled feta cheese, salt and pepper.
Cut the zucchini into half-inch rounds and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with minced garlic, dried oregano, salt and pepper. Toss everything together to coat the zucchini evenly. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the zucchini is tender and slightly charred on the edges.
To serve, transfer the roasted zucchini to a serving platter and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.
In conclusion, these two zucchini and feta cheese recipes are definitely worth trying out. They are not only delicious but also easy to make. So the next time you’re in the mood for something light and flavorful, give these recipes a try. You won’t be disappointed.
