Looking for some gut-friendly mealtime inspiration? Easy to prepare and full of flavour, Baked Feta with Lemon Sole is a delicious mealtime favourite inspired by a traditional Greek staple.
Our recipe is deceptively simple and offers rich and complex flavours that are typical of the Mediterranean, using authentic ingredients, of course! The texture and sweet flavour of Lemon Sole pairs beautifully with the sharper tones in the sauce, to create a dish that wows – and gives your good gut bacteria a helping hand, too!

Why is this good for the gut?
Tomatoes are a great source of fibre and contain many useful vitamins for the body. These include beta-carotene, which the body turns into Vitamin A, as well as good amounts of Vitamins C and E. Courgette, also known as Zucchini, is another good source of Vitamin A, as well as minerals such as Manganese, Magnesium and Potassium. Importantly, courgette contains prebiotic fibre, which supports ‘good’ gut bacteria. In addition, Feta cheese is shown to contain Lactobacillus plantarum, a good gut bacteria that are shown to support the body’s immune function.
The recipe also includes Bimuno DAILY. Our prebiotic fibre supplement feeds and nourishes bifidobacteria, good gut bacteria that are shown to support areas such as immune health, mental health and cognition. They can even influence how well we sleep! Please note – do not exceed the daily recommended intake of Bimuno DAILY, which is one (1) sachet per person, per day. The Bimuno DAILY in this recipe replaces your regular intake and should not be in addition to it.
