How to Make Whipped Feta Dip

This recipe is effortless to make with only a few simple ingredients. Using a sharp knife, cut the top of a bulb of garlic. Place the garlic on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper. Wrap the foil around the garlic and place on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown and tender.

Place feta cheese, whipped cream cheese, roasted garlic cloves, Greek seasoning, lemon juice, and olive oil in a food processor. Season with kosher salt and black pepper to taste. Process the cheese mixture until smooth. Transfer the feta to a serving bowl. Garnish the dip with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, fresh parsley, and red pepper flakes.
