Scale

Ingredients

Sticky Caramelized Dates & Sliced Almonds

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 10 dates, pitted and chopped
  • 3 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup

Whipped Feta Dip:

  • 200g block of feta cheese, crumbled (or 1 cup homemade feta)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup hummus
  • 1/4 cup vegan cream cheese (optional, for extra creaminess)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

Hot Maple Drizzle:

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce

Toasted Baguette

  • 1 baguette, ripped into chunks
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt & black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a frying pan on medium heat, add the oil, dates, almonds, cinnamon and brown sugar and stir to coat. Heat, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, until sticky and caramelized. Set aside to cool (you can transfer to a small bowl so it doesn’t stick to your pan).
  2. In a food processor, add all whipped feta ingredients and process until completely smooth and creamy. Spoon into a large shallow bowl and use your spoon to swirl and spread it around.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Place the bread chunks on a sheet pan and drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Bake about 5-10 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, stir together hot maple drizzle ingredients.
  5. When ready to serve, spoon chunks of the sticky dates & almonds overtop of the whipped feta. Spoon on the hot maple drizzle, then serve immediately with warm bread chunks. Enjoy!
