Who says that this viral TikTok recipe is just for the carby folks?
I made this two ways. One with cauliflower rice, and one with the hearts of palm pasta from Trader Joe’s.
My favorite was the cauliflower rice version, and my husband’s favorite was the hearts of palm.
- 3-9oz packages Trader Joes Hearts of Palm OR 2-12oz packages Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower rice
- 500 grams of cherry tomatoes, halved
- 7 oz feta cheese
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
- black pepper
- 6 large leaves of fresh basil, chopped
- red pepper to taste (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In an oven safe dish, put half of the olive oil in the bottom of the dish. Place feta in the center and surround with the tomatoes and garlic. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the feta and tomatoes. Season with either the black pepper or the red pepper.
Bake for 15 minutes on the center rack of the oven.
For cauliflower rice: Microwave for 10 minutes until most of the cauliflower odor is gone. Set aside.
For the hearts of palm noodles, put into a skillet and cook over medium high heat for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.
Bake the fest mixture for another 10 minutes on 450 degrees on the TOP rack of the oven.
Remove from oven, top with basil, and thoroughly combine the cheese and tomato mixture. Add to either the hearts of palm or cauliflower rice, stir, and serve!
