Ingredients

  • 225 grams / 8 oz feta cheese cut in small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons full-fat whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon spicy red pepper flakes
  • OPTIONAL: hot red pepper for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, add all of the ingredients and blend until perfectly smooth and airy. NOTE: Depending on how ripened the feta cheese is, (it's softer when it's fresh and gets harder the longer it stays in brine) you may need to adjust the quantity of cream. Start with 4 tablespoons of cream and if you find the dip not as creamy as you would like it to be, add a bit more.
  • Serve with hot red pepper or extra pepper flakes on top.
