Whipped Herb Feta

It was only just maybe three or four years ago that I realized the awesomeness that is feta cheese and I haven’t looked back since.  For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this cheese in its own salty and briny way could potentially trump sharp cheddar as my favorite cheese.  It’s just so versatile, in a way that cheddar really can’t be.  And whipping it in a food processor with some fresh herbs just exemplifies this point.  Add the whipped herb feta to a sandwich, spread it on crackers or grilled bruschetta, use it as a base for a white pizza, dip your veggies in it, swirl it around some hot soup…the possibilities are numerous.  And delicious!

Whipped Herb Feta

Total Time: 1 minute

Yield: about 1 cup

Feel free to play around with the herbs you use in this whipped feta; dill would also be amazing. If you use dried herbs, cut the amounts to ¼ teaspoon each as dried herbs have more concentrated flavors than fresh ones do.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz feta cheese, patted dry
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Crumble the feta into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 15 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the herbs and a few cranks of black pepper. Process for another 15 seconds or until the cheese is smooth and almost fluffy. Transfer the cheese to a bowl and mix it with a spatula to ensure the herbs are well distributed.

    Yum, I really need to try whipped feta. I think it is pretty even with sharp cheddar and feta for me too.

    Recently I was REALLY low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this! – fdde
