Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 kg tomatoes I like a mix of large & small vine, cherry and plum
  • 250 g cooked quinoa
  • 100 g feta
  • 1 handful pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1 handful mint leaves torn
  • 1 handful dill picked

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C or 390°F.
  • Grease a baking dish with 2 tbsps olive oil. Slice larger tomatoes into 3 or 4 slices, about 1cm thick. Halve smaller toms. Layer the tomatoes in the baking dish, season each layer carefully with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes. 
  • Spread the quinoa evenly on a baking sheet. Once the tomatoes have had 30 minutes, add quinoa to the oven & cook both quinoa & tomatoes for 15-20 minutes.
  • Once the quinoa is crisp and the tomatoes are sticky, arrange the tomatoes carefully on plates. Sprinkle over the quinoa, crumble the feta & tear the olives. Finish with the fresh herbs.
