Accessories you need



We recommend using Australian or Greek feta in this recipe, as it is a harder style feta and crumbles more easily.

This is a great dish to make ahead for dinner parties or to take to a barbecue.

    I made this Christmas day and had very good feedback. I only used half the paprika and had to leave out the garlic (as I can't eat it). Even though the carrots where all of a similar size I found some of them were better cooked than others. When I make it next time I'll give them a stir after 10 minutes.
