Also, I knew that without another side dish, the parcels and a salad wouldn't be enough for us gluttons for dinner, so in keeping with the 15 minute meals mindset, I cheated a little and knocked up a couple of packets of Ainsley's instant flavoured cous cous, which went really well.
Recipe Link: Modern Greek Salad and Feta Parcels again this one's not on his site, so here's a link to the recipe that someone else has posted.
Actual Time Taken: As seems to be about average with these '15 minute' meals, about 19 minutes.
- I subbed almond feta for the dairy feta
- I subbed soya yoghurt for the dairy yoghurt
- I left off the honey
- I left out the red onion because I forgot to buy one, plus my mum's not a massive fan of it raw
- I used mixed olives with sun-dried tomatoes instead of black olives and I served them on the side instead of mixing them in with the salad.
YUMMY!! I loved the parcel filling, I was eating it off the spatula, it is great. And the mint in the salad was a lovely addition. I think next time I wouldn't scrunch the filo, I'd wrap it more like a present, as I don't like the floury soft texture of filo when it isn't crispy, like the bits under the scrunchy top were. Aside from that, aweseome. Also, as I said before, this needed an extra side dish to make it dinner, but I think it would be perfect as is for a lunch!
See ya tomorrow MoFos! :)
