Broiled Feta with Garlicky Cherry Tomatoes Inspired by @onceuponachef Modified by @soulfoodsalon

This recipe Broiled feta with garlicky cherry tomatoes inspired by @onceuponachef really hit the spot! Seasonal tomatoes with garlic, capers, olives and chili flakes for the perfect spice! A delicious appetizer or topping for pasta.


1 (8 ounce) block feta cheese, or 5-6 small mozzarella pearls

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

10 ounces cherry tomatoes, preferably different colors, halved

Scant ¼ teaspoon salt

⅛ teaspoon pepper

1½ tablespoons capers, drained

6 black olives, sliced

6 green olives, sliced

Red chili flakes


•Preheat the broiler and set the oven rack in the top position.

•Place the feta or mozzarella pearls in a small (1-quart) baking dish and set aside.

•Heat the oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes are softened and starting to burst, 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the capers and olives.

•Scatter the tomatoes around the feta and broil until the feta is softened and browned on top, 3 to 4 minutes (but keep an eye on it as broilers vary greatly.)

•Sprinkle red chili flakes to taste

•Serve warm with bread.
