I actually never had whipped feta before I made this, but everyone I spoke to about it raved about how amazing it was. They. Were. Right.

Whipped feta is this dreamy, creamy, airy, and so tangy. It’s a life changer.

You can eat it as a dip – it is especially amazing with tomatoes when they are in season. Or as a spread in wraps or sandwiches or toasts. Basically, you can – and will want to – put it in everything.

And it’s so easy. All you do it put some feta (only use the kind in the brine, not the crumbled variety) and extra virgin olive oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Add in any kind of flavoring you want. cayenne, garlic, onion, herbs, spices, sundried tomatoes, roasted peppers. An-y-thing!

So go forth and whip it. Whip it good. (and no, I won’t apologize for the Devo reference).
