Description

This creamy, flavorful whipped feta dip is a gift from above! It’s vegetarian, and delicious. Add the walnut crumble on top or get creative. This recipe is totally versatile.


Ingredients

Scale

1 ¼ cup feta cheese

½ cup Greek yogurt

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp fresh lemon zest

½ head of cauliflower

3 tbsp olive oil

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp onion powder

¼ cup fresh parsley (roughly chopped)

Olive oil

Optional (see recipe for details)

23 tbsp toasted walnut crumble


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut the half-head of cauliflower into medium to small-sized pieces. 

Transfer the cauliflower onto the baking sheet. Evenly coat with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Bake for 20 – 30 minutes, until cooked through and golden. 

Allow the cauliflower to cool before using. 

In a medium-sized bowl, add the feta cheese, and break it into small pieces using a fork.

Add the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Using a hand mixer, whip the feta mixture until smooth and light. 

Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in the fridge. 

As that sits, prepare the chopped parsley. 

In a medium-sized serving dish, thickly spread on the whipped feta.

Drizzle olive oil over the top of the dish to the desired amount.

Arrange the roasted cauliflower around the entire dish, garnish with parsley and the optional toasted walnut crumble.

Serve immediately with pita bread, toasted sourdough, or tortilla chips.


Notes

See the toasted walnut crumble recipe here!

Replace cauliflower with roasted vegetables of your choice.

Omit roasted veggies for fresh tomatoes, cilantro, and lime.

Add savory crumble or other toasted nuts of choosing.

Have fun with it! Add other spices or toppings to your whipped feta!

Store whipped feta in the fridge in a tightly sealed container for 3 – 5 days.
