Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)

Preparation

  1. 1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
