Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip | A Nutritionist Eats

One of the unfortunate side effects of being a “food blogger” is that I rarely make the same recipes over and over again. Even if there are recipes that I love, I’m on a constant quest to try new foods and recipes, and test recipes of my own before they show up here.

So I’m making a conscious effort to go back through some of these favorite recipes. It’s been way too long since many of them have touched our plates.

Even though this very recipe was one of the first on this site (though I think it’s better written this time!) I don’t remember the last time I made it. Which is ridiculous because I LOVED this dip. It was one of my standard appetizers that I made on a regular basis when I was getting into cooking. And it’s wonderful.

Feta cheese is combined with cream cheese and roasted red peppers. It’s ridiculously simple but so tasty. Aren’t the best things in life?

You can serve it with pita crackers (or any crackers really), in sandwiches or wraps. If you are anything like me, you’ll  want to eat it on everything! I also like to serve it with a few kalamata olives on the side…because I love them and they obviously go great with feta cheese.

by Emily Dingmann

Prep Time: 10 minutes


Ingredients (about 2 cups)

  • 8 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 8 oz block of feta cheese
  • 8 oz roasted red peppers (dry weight)

In a processor, pulse together cream cheese and feta cheese.

Add red peppers to food processor and pulse until combined.

(I prefer mine a little chunky!)

Top with kalmata olives if desired. Serve with pita bread or crackers.

    I love love love this dip! It is such a classic, but I totally can relate to not making things more than once as a result of trying to keep new recipes coming on the blog! But this one is worth repeating time and time again.

    I have the same issue. It’s hard to come up with new stuff all the time, and the oldies (but goodies) fall by the wayside.

    This dip looks great for a party!

    That is so true! I am the same way and I’ve considered going back and rewriting a few of my recipes, too. This sounds so good! I’m glad you reposted it because I didn’t catch it the first time around.

    Do you use the jar of roaster red peppers from TJ’s or do you roast them yourself?

      I usually use a jar of roasted red peppers, but if you want to make it yourself, I’d use two in the recipe!
