Elevate your next party’s snack spread with our creamy whipped feta dip that’s not only delicious but also packed with a nutritious punch! We’re talking about roasted tomatoes and spiced chickpeas joining forces to take this lusciously creamy dip to the next level in terms of both taste and texture.

And the best part? This dip is incredibly versatile. Serve it up with pita bread for dipping, crispy crackers for that satisfying crunch, or fresh veggies for a burst of color and freshness. You can even spread it on sandwiches or use it as a flavorful topping for salads. The possibilities are endless!

What Is Whipped Feta? 

If you’ve never had whipped feta, you might be confused by the name, and for good reason! On its own, there’s nothing “whipped” about feta. It’s not smooth, fluffy, or spreadable as that name would suggest.

However, when combined in a blender with just a few simple ingredients feta undergoes an incredible transformation. In just a few minutes it turns from hard and crumbly to creamy and perfect for dipping, dunking, and spreading! 

What Is Whipped Feta Dip Made Of? 

For this whipped feta dip, we broke the recipe down into two sections. First, we’ll make roasted tomatoes and chickpeas for topping. Then, we’ll move on to the feta. Here’s everything you’ll need! 

For the Tomatoes and Chickpeas

  • Tomatoes – We recommend using cherry tomatoes because they can be cooked whole and used for bite-sized toppings. They blister beautifully in the oven and provide a hearty robust flavor that pairs perfectly with the saltiness of the feta dip. 
  • Chickpeas – Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas provide a slightly crunchy texture and are a great source of plant-based protein! 
  • Herbs and Spices – For the best flavor we use thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Not only is it a good source of healthy fats, but olive oil also helps the tomatoes and chickpeas become blistered and crispy. 

For the Feta

  • Feta – For easy blending, we use feta crumbles rather than a whole block of feta cheese. 
  • Greek Yogurt – High in protein, Greek yogurt also provides a tangy flavor we love. 
  • Ricotta Cheese – Although similar in taste, ricotta, and feta cheese are not quite the same. By combining them, we are able to create a sweeter whipped feta dip that’s even creamier thanks to the higher moisture content of ricotta. 
  • Cream Cheese – For the richest flavor, we include full-fat cream cheese, but anything works! It’ll make your feta dip super creamy and smooth. 
  • Garlic – Trust us, you want fresh garlic! The canned stuff just isn’t nearly as tasty. 
  • Honey – A dash of honey adds a hint of sweetness that levels out the savory flavors of all the spices. 
  • Salt and Pepper – Use as little or as much as you want! 
  • Za’taar – A popular spice in the Middle East, za’taar is a blend of oregano, thyme, marjoram, sumac, basil, and sesame seeds. Earthy, lemony, and just a little salty, it provides an umami flavor that takes this whipped feta dip to the next level! 
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Technically optional, we drizzle extra olive oil on top for an even more decadent dip. 

How to Make Creamy Whipped Feta Dip 

Just like the ingredient list, the instructions for this recipe are broken down into two parts. Then, once they’re ready, we combine them into one unbelievable dish! 

For the Tomatoes

  1. Layer the tomatoes and chickpeas on a sheet pan. 
  2. Toss with olive oil and seasonings. 
  3. Bake at 400° Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes

For the Whipped Feta

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor. 
  2. Pulse until smooth.
  3. Spread your whipped feta onto a serving platter, and spread the tomatoes and chickpeas on top. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add a sprinkle of za’taar and an extra drizzle of olive oil!

Serving Suggestions

This whipped feta dip is so insanely delicious, we’ve been caught red-handed devouring it straight from the bowl with a spoon!  But if you’re in the mood to step up your snacking game with something a little more sophisticated, we’ve got you covered. These are a few of our faves:

  • Pita Bread
  • Crackers
  • Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Veggie Sticks

How Long Does This Whipped Feta Dip Last? 

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to serve, we suggest letting it sit out until it comes to room temperature so it’s easier to spread.

    Is there any substitute for the ricotta cheese? I’m vegan and I have the vegan version of the feta and cream cheese, but not for the ricotta.

    1. I wanted to make this into an entree so I served in individual shallow bowls starting with a layer of half hummus & half whipped feta dip. Then I topped with the roasted tomatoes & chickpeas. Served with full-sized pita. Delish!
