Herby Feta and Tofu Bake

For an easy dinner, there is nothing quite as simple as a herby feta and tofu bake!  Everything gets chucked together (with a little bit of prep) with some delicious tomato sauce and off you go!  Flavoursome, simple and completely delicious.  To make it vegan, use an extra block of tofu and skip the feta.

This is another one of our favourites that we have been eating for years that I have been yet to share with you.  Not because I don’t want to, just that when we seem to have had it in the past, I was taking a break from Susty’s or we were away or something. Not to worry, the Herby Feta and Tofu bake recipe is here now! Hallelujah!

I think my love for this dinner came out in the way that I placed the bread – look at the kind of hearts!!  It is such a simple meal that works so incredibly well.  Perfect for during the week.  I reckon (although I haven’t tried it yet) that it would work pretty well in the slow cooker too – but by mixing the feta through or lying it on top of the sauce while it cooks in the day then mixing it through.  When I try it, I’ll let you know!

A bit of a confession on the bread though!  This is a walnut and seed bread purchased (on the cheap at the end of the day from M&S!) I had run out of time and wanted bread in a jiffy (even quicker than my Super Quick Bread) so it had to be done.  That is a tip though, if you’re near an M&S around 6pm, there is often a good chance that you’ll get some good discount on the fresh bread counter!

You know what?  There is no shame in buying dinner bits, we all need a break! And they have delicious bread, it has to be said!

Right, I have lots to do today (I’m making ready meals for my parents!) so I’d best be off!

    • Feta is really good, isn’t it? It adds just the right amount of saltiness 🙂 I hope you enjoy this bake. (I’m off to check out your feta recipe that I spotted earlier) 😀 Thanks for pinning too 🙂
