Whipped Feta with Honey and Thyme

This week has been all about quick dinners as we pack for our trip to New York (tomorrow! Eee!) and get everything in order. This whipped feta with honey and a hint of thyme takes minutes to prepare and is perfect with some thinly sliced toast. 

Feta is generally crumbly, but give it a bit of attention and it can be worked into a smooth, velvety consistency. I love the combination of the sweet honey with the salty feta, and the little pops of thyme add the final touch of flavour. I have to be careful to only make this in reasonably small batches though because it’s so delicious – I would just be eating it all day long given the chance!


The amounts given in the recipe below are really just a guide, as it depends on your tastes. I tend to go easy on the thyme and chop it fairly finely to get a good distribution through the feta and to avoid huge overwhelming waves of thyme flavour, but I like a solid amount of honey. The idea is to taste as you go really.

Anyway, back to packing. Next stop, NYC!

Ingredients

  • 200g feta
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Generous pinch very finely chopped fresh thyme (around 1/4 tsp)

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix together the feta, honey, and thyme and keep stirring and working the mixture until it starts to come together into a smooth consistency.
  2. Serve in a bowl with a couple of little thyme sprigs and an extra drizzle of honey.
