Whipped feta is a tangy, creamy dip that’s perfect for spreading on toast, dipping vegetables, or serving as a party appetizer. It’s simple to make and only requires two ingredients!!
Can we all agree the crumbled feta is a pain to deal with? It just falls off or out of everything. Enter whipped feta. It’s a creamy spread that not only tastes amazing, but that takes anything it’s spread on to the next level.
To make whipped feta, all you need is:
4 oz feta cheese
4 oz cream cheese (or Greek yogurt)
You can make more or less, because you know that the whipped feta recipe is equal parts feta and cream cheese or Greek yogurt.
To make the whipped feta you’ll crumble feta cheese and add it to a food processor (or blender if you don’t have a food processor). Then add the cream cheese and pulse until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
If you want a more tangy flavor you can add a squeeze of lemon juice.
One of my older recipes for chickpea zucchini burgers includes whipped feta. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to make whipped feta outside of making those burgers. It was actually Nick who made this whipped feta multiple times before I said I just needed to share it here on the blog!
Tips for making whipped feta:
Use a high-quality feta cheese for the best flavor. Look for a feta cheese that’s creamy and tangy, but not too salty. We find ours at a greek specialty store.
Don’t over-mix the whipped feta. Over-mixing can cause the whipped feta to become too smooth and loose its texture. Pulse the mixture a few times to make sure it’s well mixed.
Get creative with your toppings. Whipped feta is delicious on its own, but it’s also a base for other flavors – like fresh herbs, hot honey, evoo or tomatoes
My favorite is whipped feta on a very grainy bread or sourdough topped with cucumbers and fresh dill.
