    Baked feta with farro and pea shoot dressing

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    100g Odysea 100% Sheep’s Milk Feta, broken into large chunks
    1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
    ½ lemon, zest and juice
    25g pack mint, leaves picked
    100g Waitrose quick cook farro dicocco
    160g fresh or frozen peas
    80g pack pea shoots
    150g natural yogurt
    handful pomegranate seeds 


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Arrange the feta on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with ½ tbsp olive oil, scatter over the lemon zest and a few mint leaves, season with black pepper and bake for 15 minutes (if you want the feta more charred, put under the grill for 2-3 minutes after baking). Meanwhile, cook the farro according to pack instructions, adding the peas for the last 3 minutes; drain and set aside.

    2. For the dressing, place 45g pea shoots, the remaining mint and ½ tbsp olive oil, the lemon juice and yogurt in a NutriBullet or small food processor. Season and whizz until smooth.

    3. Mix ½ the dressing into the warm farro and peas. Divide the mixture between 2 plates, topping with the remaining pea shoots and the baked feta. Serve with the extra dressing and a scattering of pomegranate seeds.
