About the Recipe
The perfect appetizer for the holidays
Approx. 8 oz block of feta cheese, drained from brine (around 220 grams)
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (use a higher fat option for less tartness) (benefits of Greek yogurt)
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1-2 Tbsp honey (plus more, to serve)
1 tsp dried thyme
Black pepper (freshly cracked)
Extra honey drizzle
Serve With Crusty, toasted bread (like sourdough or baguette)
Make whipped feta by adding the feta cheese and greek yogurt to a food processor. Blend ingredients together for a few minutes until smooth, scraping down with a spatula as needed.
Add pumpkin puree, 1 or 2 Tbsps of honey (depending on desired sweetness), thyme, and a few cracks of black pepper to the food processor. Blend again until all ingredients are combined.
Transfer whipped feta to the fridge and chill (covered) for 30-60 minutes. This is necessary to harden and chill the dip.
When you're ready to serve this recipe, transfer the whipped feta to a large bowl. Garnish with a handful of chopped walnuts (optional), a generous sprinkle of fresh thyme, an extra drizzle of honey, and more pepper.
Serve with crusty/toasted bread or crackers for dipping. Enjoy!
