Spinach and feta dip with homemade pitta chips

Spinach and feta dip

Dips are so easy and it doesn’t have to be guacamole and hummous everytime. Even though I do love them they can get a little bit dull.

Feta is a great medium for a dip, you can mix lots of different things into it like sauteed mushrooms, fresh herbs, chargrilled red pepper, courgettes etc.

I chose to use frozen spinach as I had bought a bag as a bit of a trial to see if it was a good cheap alternative to the fresh stuff. It isn’t!

But it does have it’s uses….

This dip for example (however I do think it would taste better with wilted fresh spinach).

Ingredients

100 grams frozen spinach
200 grams feta
Olive oil
Lemon
Salt and Pepper
Dried oregano

Method

Cook spinach as per instructions, I microwaved mine for 2 mins. Then drain through a sieve.

Once drained and cool pop into the food processor with the feta, juice of 1/2 lemon and 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano.
