Last time in Brussels we discovered an area called Sint-Gills. The combination of great cafés and original shops, a large population of immigrants mixed with contemporary art galleries and fantastic art nouveau buildings makes it a fun and diverse place to discover. Brasserie Verschueren, set next to a church giving mass in 5 different languages!, is the place to take it all in. We spent hours here chatting away, drinking beer and enjoying some delicious home cooked styled food. While Eric tucked in to a huge plate of pasta, I had this tasty toasted sandwich with feta, olives and mint.
4 slices of bread
60g feta, crumbled
15 black olives, chopped
1 tbsp mint leaves, shredded
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large tomato
In a bowl, combine feta, olives, mint leaves and olive oil. Spread evenly over 2 slices of bread. Thinly slice the tomato and add to the sandwiches. Season with black pepper. Cover with the remaining bread slices.
Heat a bit of butter in a frying pan. Bake the sandwiches on both sides until golden and the cheese starts to melt. Cut to make triangles. Serve with a salad.
