Just a quick idea for a great, simple, delicious Friday night dip – whipped feta. It has the salty tang of feta but it’s a little mellower, making it perfect for dipping vegetables (mange tout, roasted carrots, cauliflower) into. Even better, it only takes a few minutes to make, it tastes heavenly and your friends will love it.
WHIPPED FETA DIP
You can add other bits and pieces into it as you’re making it if you like (roast garlic, chopped herbs, lemon zest) but I think it’s nicest when it’s just a pure white canvas for olive oil and chili flakes.
Serves 6 +, keeps in the fridge for about 2 days
175g Greek yoghurt
Squeeze of lemon juice
Dried chili flakes
Blend the feta and Greek yoghurt together in a food processor or with a hand mixer until it’s light and fluffy, adding up to 25g more Greek yoghurt if you want a looser dip. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and transfer to smaller dishes. Dress with olive oil, chili flakes or diced mint and fresh red chili.
