Feta and Za’tar Dip

My week in pictures

This simple and delicious dip came about when I was sent some Za’tar from Steenbergs Organics. I had some girlfriends coming for an alfresco supper and I wanted to make some dips to go alongside some crunchy vegetables and pita bread.

I had purchased some Wootten White feta style cheese from Frome Independant Market and was looking for a way of incorporating the cheese into my menu in an unusual way. This dip came to mind and seemed like a very social starter to share with my lovely friends alongside a crisp glass of local white wine in the early summer sunshine.

Prep Time
10 min
  1. 6 ounces of Wooten White feta style cheese or other, room temperature
  2. 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  3. Zest of 1 small lemon
  4. 3 tablespoons garlic oil, plus more for serving
  5. 2 teaspoons za’atar, plus more for serving
  1. Method for the garlic oil: Preheat oven to 180C. In a small oven-safe pan, combine the peeled, halved garlic cloves and the olive oil. The oil should cover the cloves.
  2. Roast until the garlic is just golden, about 13-15 minutes. Let the garlic oil cool completely in the pan, and then strain and discard the cloves. You will have 4 tablespoons of garlic oil, 3 for the recipe and 1 for drizzling.
  3. Method for the dip: Whiz the Wooten White feta, cream cheese, lemon zest, za'tar and garlic oil in a food processor until very smooth and creamy.
  4. Garnish the dip with the additional tablespoon of garlic oil and a sprinkling of za’atar. Serve immediately with your favorite vegetables, pita bread or crackers.
