Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 large red bell pepper, or use 1 (8-ounce) jar roasted red peppers instead
  • 1 (8-ounce) block feta cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese (not block cream cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed and peeled
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 pinch sea salt, or to taste
  • 1 green onion, sliced (optional garnish)

Instructions

Recipe Prep: Fire roast the red bell pepper

👉🏻 NOTE: Skip this step if using a jar of roasted red peppers.

  1. Char the pepper directly over an open flame on a gas stove or under a broiler until the skin is blistered and blackened. Then, place it in a sealed bag or a heat-safe covered bowl for easy peeling. Let the pepper steam for 10 minutes to loosen up the skin.
  2. When the charred pepper is cool to the touch, use a paper towel to rub off the blackened skin (or use a knife to scrape it off). Discard the scrapings. Remove and discard the stem and seeds. With a sharp knife, chop the pepper’s soft red flesh into small pieces. Set them aside until ready to use.

WHIPPED FETA DIP RECIPE

  1. Add cubed feta, cream cheese, olive oil, smashed garlic, lemon juice and dried thyme to the bowl of a food processor. Process the ingredients until the mixture is smooth and creamy (about 2 minutes). If needed, occasionally stop the machine to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  2. Add chopped peppers to the bowl. Pulse until desired size is reached. Turn off machine. Sample the mixture. Add salt to taste.
  3. Transfer whipped feta dip to a small bowl. If desired, garnish the surface with sliced green onions. Serve with pita, crackers and/or veggies.

Notes

How to make this recipe faster: Instead of charring and peeling a fresh red pepper at home, make this recipe in just 5 minutes using a store-bought jar of “fire-roasted red bell peppers”. 

How to store this dip: Store feta dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Stir before serving.
