To prepare ourselves for our excessive feta consumption, we whip up a light feta dip for some friends. Htipiti is a spread combining the salty cheese with roasted red peppers and spices, kind of like a Greek Romesco Sauce. We love to serve the orangey red blend as a dip with our absolute favorite chips, Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips or as a spread atop a lamb burger or flatbread. The blend of Mediterranean flavors in every bite triggers our taste buds for the meal ahead.
8 oz feta cheese, roughly crumbled
1 whole roasted red pepper, roughly chopped
1 t lemon zest
1 T lemon juice
2 T EVOO
1 t cumin
1 t dried oregano
1 t chopped fresh chives
1 clove garlic
1 t cracked black pepper
In a food processor, add all the ingredients and pulse until fully blended and smooth. If the mixture is too thick add more EVOO. Plate and serve with pita chips and/or sliced vegetables, we love Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips. Serves 6-8.
Looking forward to a weekend of celebrations...
