Method

  1. Make the croutons. Toss the bread, oil and za’atar (if using) together on a baking sheet. Turn the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C and put the bread straight in. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden and crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, put 150g feta and the yogurt in a small food processor or blender and blitz until smooth. Cover and chill in the fridge until needed.
  3. Toss the tomatoes with the vinegar, 1 tbsp oil, lemon zest, sugar, a little salt and a generous amount of black pepper in a bowl.
  4. Toss the asparagus with the remaining oil and some seasoning. Heat a griddle or frying pan over a high heat and griddle the asparagus, in batches, for 5 mins, turning regularly, until charred all over.
  5. To serve, spread the whipped feta on a sharing platter or divide between plates. Top with the asparagus spears, then spoon over the tomatoes and their juices. Add the croutons and crumble over the remaining feta to serve.
