Based on a recipe from Diana Henry’s Simple.  She mashes the pepper, onion, feta mixture to make a Htipiti, which i hadn’t heard of before and didn’t look particularly appetizing from a quick google search.  I am probably wrong about that.

I also violated the food on top of other food plating principle, ah well.  it tasted good.
