I’m not sure anyone walks into a kitchen and says “I’m going to make a really complicated dinner that is going to take forever to cook” but summer in particular seems to call for fast and easy meals. I’ll be posting more super simple recipes, to get you through the warmer months.
This recipe inspiration goes to my sister-in-law’s mother, who was here this week when little Jack was born. She made some amazing spread with cream cheese and feta, and I knew I needed to recreate this.
Since I was on my own for dinner last night, I wanted to keep things simple, and I had some pita I needed to use up, so I settled on a pita pizza. I figured if I added lots of fresh veggies on top of a whole wheat pita, I could justify this as a healthy dinner 😉
Creamy Feta Pizza
- 1 large pita
- 1 oz feta
- 1 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
- Sprigs of fresh dill (optional)
Pop the pita into the oven or a toaster oven for a few minutes at 400 until it’s crispy. You could brush it with a little olive oil and garlic if you’re feeling fancy, but you don’t have to. In a small bowl, combine the feta and cream cheese until smooth. (I just used a fork.) Stir in dill. Spread it over the warm pita and cover with diced tomatoes. You could also add olives if you’re into that. (I am not.) This was so simple, but so delicious.
I had this with my beloved kale salad, and it was the perfect meal after a quick Jillian Michaels workout. I’ll probably make this again before the weekend is over! This dinner kept me surprisingly full, although I did have a few pieces of this before I went to bed:
I LOVE frozen mango. I could eat the entire bag at once. It’s so delicious. The weather here has been crazy, but I’m hoping for some sunshine over the weekend. I missed the farmer’s market last week, and it was disappointing not having lots fresh fruits and vegetables on hand. Looks like I’ll have to stock up this weekend.
