Ingredients
  

Baked feta

  • 1 homemade portion of macadamia feta*
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/3 cup macadamias chopped

Vegan macadamia crispbreads (makes about 20)

  • 1/4 cup macadamias
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp macadamia oil
  • 3 tbsp water cold

Macadamia za’atar (makes ½ cup)

  • 1/4 cup macadamias roasted
  • 1 tbsp oregano leaves dried
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp sumac
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • For the baked feta, line a small baking tray with baking paper or use an ovenproof serving dish. Preheat oven to 180°C. Form the homemade feta into a disc approximately 3cm thick. Place onto the prepared tray or serving dish and drizzle with honey. Scatter the top with chopped macadamias. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the nuts are golden.
  • For the macadamia crispbreads, Combine the macadamias, flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor and process carefully to create a fine flour mixture. With motor running, gradually add the oil and then water. Process until the mixture comes together to form a ball. Add a little more water if necessary, a small amount at a time. Pat the mixture together, wrap in waxed paper and set aside for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 180°C . Line a baking tray with baking paper. Flatten teaspoon sized pieces of dough into long ovals, thinning out as much as possible and place on the tray.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
  • For the za’atar, combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine, until the mixture is still a little coarse but thoroughly combined.
  • To serve, arrange the warm feta, vegan macadamia crispbreads and macadamia za’atar on a platter.
