I absolutely adore dips. Not only are they a great way to entertain, but they also help down a lot of vegetables with it without realising.

I had this Greek dip called Htipiti several years ago at a friend’s house and fell in love with the fresh bold flavours of the Feta cheese and lemon mixed with the red peppers.

The other day, a very dear friend had come home for dinner and we decided to make this superb tangy dip as an appetiser. This also seemed like the perfect opportunity to show off my new scandi-board.
The best part of this recipe was it was so easy and so very quick to make. I used roasted peppers from the jar this time so the Dip was ready in just 5 minutes- start to finish. If however, you use fresh red peppers, roast it in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil. It does take slightly longer, but both versions taste just as good.


  • Feta cheese, crumbled - 1 cup about 125 gm
  • Red peppers, roasted or bottled- 3 large -
  • Garlic cloves- 3
  • Oregano- 1 tsp
  • Olive oil- 2 tbsp
  • Lemon juice- 2-3 tbsp
  • Chilli flakes- 1/4 tsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Pepper- 1/4 tsp



Step 1

Mince or grate the garlic.

Step 2

Brush some olive oil on the red peppers and roast them at 180C for 30-35 minutes till the top goes balack and charred. REmove the skin and use for the dip. Alternatively, use half a jar of roasted red peppers.

Step 3

Add everything to the food processor or blender and pulse till you get a crumbly texture, but all the ingredients have mixed up. YOu can make it really creamy if you like but I like a crumbly texture.

Step 4

REmove into a bowl. Mix up. Adjust seasonings. Sometimes the red peppers are really sweet. YOu might need to add some more chilli flakes/ pepper or lemon juice as required.

Step 5

Garnish with anything- oregano, red pepper flakes, bits of roasted red pepper or just some crumbled feta. The white feta does stand out on the lovely red dip.

Step 6

Serve with carrot or cucumber sticks or tortilla chips.
