2 Minute Tomatoes & Feta

I love simple, classic flavours. And I cannot do without breakfast, but the same old cereal-and-milk or bread-and-eggs gets boring really fast. I came across Feta Cheese at a specialty store, and couldn't resist picking it up. Tomatoes, feta, olive oil, bread.. Really couldn't go wrong here, could I? :P

Simple Microwave Tomatoes and Feta Cheese with Olives and Bread

2 tomatoes
Feta cheese
Olive oil
Oregano/ Herbs of choice
A microwave safe bowl
Bread of choice. I suggest multigrain or whole wheat.

1. Slice the tomatoes thinly and arrange a layer in a microwave-safe bowl.

2. Thinly slice the feta cheese and arrange on top of the tomatoes. Room-temperature feta is very crumbly, so just strew the bits over the tomatoes. Don't go crazy and put too much.. Preserved feta usually has a very strong flavour.

3. Arrange another layer of thinly sliced tomatoes over the feta.

4. Top with more crumbly bits of feta.

5. Drizzle olive oil over it.

6. Sprinkle oregano or, if you're not too fond of it, your herb of choice. Italian seasoning would be good, too.

7. Microwave on HIGH (900 watt?) for 2 minutes.

8. Serve with olives and lightly toasted triangles of bread.

The tomatoes and feta will give off some water.. Don't be surprised. Depending on taste, the quantities of feta and tomatoes can be adjusted.

I strongly suggest serving this with bread, since the flavour is quite strong and on the salty side.
