How to Make Whipped Cottage Cheese Dip
In a food processor, add 1/2 cup of feta cheese and 1/2 cup of full-fat cottage cheese. You can use fat-free cottage cheese if you want, but I like the full-fat version.
Now, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. You could even add a pinch of garlic powder if you want.
Blend this until creamy. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, chop up 1/2 cup of tomatoes and pour on two tablespoons of olive oil. Chop a teaspoon each of fresh basil and fresh parsley. Add to the bowl with the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Mix together and then pour over the top of the creamy dip.
That's it. This whipped cottage cheese recipe really is that simple. I like to serve this delicious dip with chips, fresh fruit, and fresh veggies, but you can also make crostini to serve with it. For an added bump of flavor, throw in some Greek yogurt for good measure.
My favorite veggies to serve with this are cherry tomatoes, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and more.
When ready to put it away, store it in an airtight container.
