Za’atar and Feta Flatbread
There’s nothing like a free-form flatbread to make you feel a bit fancy at dinnertime. This colourful beauty is all about the tender zucchini, the sweetness of cooked shallots and the salty finish of feta. It’s unbeatable!
- 200 g Zucchini
- 50 g Shallot
- 1 tbsp Za’atar Spice
- 2 unit Flatbread
- ½ cup Feta Cheese
- 113 g Baby Spinach
- 113 g Cherry Tomatoes
- 28 g Almonds, sliced
- 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 1.5 tsp Dijon Mustard
- 1.5 tbsp Honey
1: Before starting, preheat your broiler to high.Wash and dry all produce. Arrange flatbreads on a baking sheet, top side-down. Broil in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. (TIP: Keep an eye on flatbreads so that they don’t burn!) Flip flatbreads, then set aside. Cut zucchini into 1/8-inch rounds. Halve tomatoes. Peel, then cut shallot into 1/4-inch slices.
2: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) then shallots and half the spinach. Cook, stirring often, until shallots soften, 2-3 min. Toss zucchini, half the za’atar and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
3: Top flatbread with spinach-shallot mixture. Layer zucchini rounds on top. Crumble over feta. Broil in the middle of the oven, until zucchini is soft and flatbread is golden-brown, 8-10 min.
4: While flatbread broils, wipe the same pan clean, then heat over medium. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
5: Whisk together mustard, vinegar, honey, remaining za’atar and 2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) in the same medium bowl used in step 2. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve 2 tbsp dressing (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Set aside. Add tomatoes and remaining spinach to the dressing in the medium bowl. Toss together.
6: Cut flatbread into squares, then divide between plates. Serve with spinach-tomato salad. Sprinkle almonds over salad and drizzle reserved dressing over flatbread.
Za’atar and Feta Flatbread – Final Thoughts
I have to admit, both the hubby and I were pleasantly surprised with this recipe. It’s beyond simple and has minimal ingredients. I’m used to flatbread being topped with twice the amount of veggies and other ingredients. This one was beyond simple with just a small amount of shallots, spinach and feta, and the main topping being the zucchini. I’m not even really a fan of zucchini so this recipe had a lot of things going against it. But….it was absolutely delicious! The simplicity is what made it so good. No one ingredient was over powering and the za’atar dressing brought everything together. This is one of our favorite HelloFresh Canada recipes to date!
