Quick Greek lunch – baked feta with tomatoes and pepper

This baked feta lunch is a perfect solution for a quick lunch, for those days in which you don’t have anything prepared but you also don’t feel like cooking. It is very fast, quite light and surprisingly delicious. And I bet it can even be done in the microwave on the grill function!

Besides, if you skip the bread and replace it with some carrots or celery sticks, it makes a perfect low-carb snack.

This recipe was an inspiration from a Youtube Channel  that I really like to follow: Retetele Mihaelei.
