Feta-Chilli Dip

about 10 minutes (plus 1 hour cooling)
Makes a small bowlful of dip for 2 people (double the recipe for 4 people)

60g feta
85g roasted red pepper (drained and patted dry)
juice of a 1/4 lemon
1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
1/8 cup of olive oil
pinch of oregano

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Place in the fridge to cool for at least 1 hour. Serve on crostini, with tortilla chips or pita bread.

One of my favourite things to try when I visit people’s homes, are they dips they make. I like the different combinations of flavours and how people choose to present their snack food. At Christmas time I like to have a couple of dips in the fridge just in case visitors drop by. This dip is a spicy feta dip. It’s super easy to make, and hopefully you can make it with ingredients you already have in your home. It goes great with crostini or potato chips – like plain olive-oil chips. You can also pair it with pita bread too. Also, don’t forget that if you are craving some guacamole or homemade chips – like tarot root (“kolokassi”) chips, there is also a recipe for that on the website. It’s a little more effort, but very tasty and enjoyable. You can find the recipe for the chips and guacamole here.
