Place them into an oven tray with the thyme leaves, chilli flakes, olive oil and some salt and toss them around until they’re all covered.

Pop them into the over at 200 C for 30 minutes, tossing occasionally to make sure they don’t stick.

Next up, start on your dip. Add the feta cheese, tons of black pepper and some oil to a bowl before adding a few spoons of natural yogurt to create the right consistency.
