Directions See How It's Made
- Place raw almonds in a pan and roast over low-medium heat for 3 minutes flip and roast for 3 more minutes. Coarsely chop and set aside.
- Prepare Zucchini and Red Peppers. Brush each side of red pepper strips and zucchini with olive oil. Salt (optional). Grill until desired readiness.
- Prepare Feta. Place feta halves in the center of a large piece of foil. To prevent olive oil from leaking onto the grill, pull all four corner of the foil together vertically.
- Pour 3/2 tablespoons olive oil over the feta, and crumble fresh rosemary over the feta (or ~ 1/4 tsp dried rosemary.
- Bring all ends of the foil together to loosely enclose the feta in the foil pocket, and grill over a medium heat for 5-7 minutes until cheese is soft. Remove immediately if bottom of cheese starts to brown.
- Spoon the soft, rosemary feta over the red peppers and zucchini, and sprinkle almond pieces on top for added protein.
- Notes: If baking in oven, you can place the foiled feta in a dish to reduce the risk of possible mess/spills. Be careful not to puncture the foil or the oil will leak out and make a mess. You can grill at the same time just be sure to place the feta on the grill 2-3 minutes before you remove the veggies so you have time to arrange veggies on platter. it's important to spread the feta quickly and serve immediately; the cheese is best enjoyed warm and soft.
