The other day I was craving something smooth and creamy and I couldn’t quite put my finger one what I was wanting. It wasn’t creamy cheese I was craving but something a bit more savory.

Then I remembered back to a time when we went camping in Joshua Tree. We went to a little cafe close by for breakfast the next day and I had a delicious slice of toast with whipped feta, strawberries and a drizzle of honey. And then I remembered how much I love whipped feta and want more of it in my life. 

So there you have it. That’s how this beautifully creamy whipped feta dip came upon your computer slash phone screen. Two years ago I had a slice of toast. Today I decided to recreate part of it.

I cant get over the creaminess that is this whipped goodness. It’s salty and garlicky and I am obsessing over the contrast between the creamy feta and the juicy, bursting tomatoes. Plus the lemon zest gives it the most refreshingly light flavor perfect for any summer gathering. 

But like, I just sat down and ate this for my lunch so smear it on a pita, load it with some chickpeas, cucumbers, roasted tomatoes, and fresh herbs for a really delicious veggie meal. And! If you love dips that double as spreads as much as I do, try my favorite hummus recipe, my eggplant red pepper dip, or this beet and horseradish dip!

So let’s get into the reason you came and dive into this recipe! I’m so excited to teach you how to make easy whipped feta! 

Place the tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Roast in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until they are blistered and starting to burst.

While the tomatoes are roasting, place the feta, oil, water, garlic, zest of 1/2 of the lemon, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper into the food processor. Process for 1 – 2 minutes until completely creamed together and smooth. Transfer the whipped feta to a serving bowl.

Top with the roasted tomatoes, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, black sesame seeds, the remaining zest of the lemon, and a couple pinches of ground pepper.
