1 cup artichoke hearts

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

A few coarse grindings of black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Set oven to 350°F
  2. Put the feta in a gratin dish or other small ovenproof dish that you will also serve out of.
  3. Pour the olive oil into the dish, followed by the lemon juice. Arrange the olives and artichoke hearts around the cheese. Sprinkle the red pepper flakes and grind black pepper.
