You will need…..

1cup of tomato puree

There is no cooking involved with this dish, just a small ( tiny in fact !) bit of elbow grease.

Firstly break up the bread so that it resembles crumbs, stale bread is so much easier to work with. Feel free to be a tad adventurous and use seeded bread, ciabatta or even sour dough.

Add the puree, olive oil and crumble up the feta cheese. Mix it up with your hands and then add the chilli flakes, parsley, salt and walnuts. Work it together and once it is all mixed together, push it into a serving dish and pop it in the fridge.

This can be eaten over a couple of days, which is great as the flavour will intensify. You can also flip this into a non veg recipe by placing this as a filling inside a chicken breast and turning it into a delicious chicken Kiev, or even mix with some natural yogurt for a dip with crudités.
