How To Make Whipped Feta I howsweeteats.com

This whipped feta is single-handedly changing my life. And I mean, like reallyreallyreally changing my life, in ways that include consuming (very small) portions of vegetables along with it because it’s that good. Not like in the when-I was-12-I-stood-outside-of-Limited-Too-in-a-mint-and-navy-flannel-pleated-plaid-skirt-being-a-“model” type of way. That really didn’t take me… anywhere. Fortunately. 

For weeks I was inflated with the idea of whipped feta. I have no idea why; I don’t know where I saw it, read about it or heard of it, but I certainly never tasted it and wasn’t really sure that it was a thing. Thank goodness it’s a thing.

You know where I actually think the thought came from? Crumbled feta is a pain. I mean, it’s a delicious pain, but it’s so, well, crumbly that if it’s inside a pita or on top of a pizza, it rolls right off. The crumbles crumble into even tinier crumbles. Even on a salad, it’s nearly impossible to stab each little chunk of feta with a fork and who is going to eat a salad with a spoon? Exactly.

Enter whipped feta. OMG. It is, in two words, freaking awesome.

As you can clearly see, I slathered it on toast. If I’m being perfectly honest, this is the way I ate almost the entire batch. So simple. So creamy and fabulous! I can’t take it. Ugh. And so much flavor.

I attempted the recipe three different ways: with regular cream cheese, whipped cream cheese and Greek yogurt. The whipped cream cheese easily won out. Maybe I’m just a sucker for anything whipped, but oh well. It’s just… yes.

Perhaps my favorite thing about this whole mess is that you can flavor it any way you like. With just these two ingredients, it tastes like… creamy feta. Mine did not need any additional seasoning, but you make the call. You could add roasted red peppers or a ton of herbs. You could even make this incredible dip into a whipped version, which is definitely at the top of my to-do list. You can add it to a salad or soup – heck, even spread it on pizza or use it like hummus. And the best part is that right after whipping? It’s sort of warm and super spreadable. But it’s just as great coming out of the fridge too.

Okay. What I’m really trying to say is that your Wednesday should be consumed by this activity. Whip your feta.

How To Make Whipped Feta

Yield: makes about 3/4 cup

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled and at room temperature
3 ounces whipped cream cheese, at room temperature

Directions:

Add crumbled feta to a food processor and pulse until small crumbs remain. Add in cream cheese and puree for 4-5 minutes, scraping down the sides when necessary, until feta is super creamy. Serve as desired.

I topped mine with roasted tomatoes, fresh herbs and roasted garlic oil.

    Turned out awesome! I used subs I had on hand – no cream cheese, so ricotta and coconut milk. Tossed in some garlic, ginger and white pepper for fun. Plan to slather on beets tonight. Maybe thin a bit more, a few more spices and make a salad dressing, too! So many options! TY!
