Roast marrow with feta cheese and mint

Roasted marrow with feta and mint

The marrow harvest has been good this year so when my neighbour brought round yet another whopper, I thought I’d try to think of something new. This idea turned out to be a winner! Goes well with grilled chops, chicken or sausages, although I could quite happily have eaten it on its own.

You will need…….

  • An ovenproof dish and a frying pan.
  • A marrow.
  • A couple of onions – I used one red and one white as that’s what was in the cupboard.
  • A tablespooon of light olive oil or duck fat if you’ve got any handy.
  • A medium sized block of feta cheese, about 50g.
  • A clove of garlic, crushed.
  • Freshly chopped mint.
  • Sea salt and pepper.

To cook…..

  • Preheat your oven to 200C.
  • Peel and roughly chop the marrow into large chunks – pyramid shapes look attractive.
  • Peel and coarsley slice the onions.
  • Heat the oil or duck fat in a frying pan and lightly sautee the onion for about 5 minutes and then add the crushed garlic and marrow for another 3 minutes.
  • Season with a little sea salt and pepper, place in a baking dish and put into the hot oven to roast – it takes about 20 minutes. It needs to cook hot and fast so the marrow is caramelised on the outside but retains its succulence.
  • When it’s nice and brown, take it out of the oven and crumble the feta over it. Put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes for the cheese to warm through and melt slightly.
  • Take it out of the oven and sprinkle with chopped fresh mint.
  • Delicious hot or just warm.
