Pea Feta Dip

This Pea Feta Dip takes just minutes to make. It is perfect as a light dip served with homemade pita chips or crackers and works equally well as a lightened-up alternative to hummus on sandwiches. Leftover pea feta dip keeps well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days so it makes an excellent addition to future sandwiches, crudité platters or snacking endeavors.

Ingredients and Substitutions:

  • Frozen Peas: these are the easiest to use for this recipe as they are all packed at peak freshness. Thaw them on the counter or steam or cook them and allow them to cool.
  • Shallot
  • Garlic Powder
  • Fresh Mint
  • Sour Cream: You can use light or original, whatever is your preference.
  • Olive Oil
  • Parsley
  • Feta Cheese: If you must substitute the feta cheese you could try either Goat cheese or Cojita cheese though as this is a very simple dish, substituting among the main ingredients will cause a vast shift in the taste of the final recipe.
  • Lemon juice: I used fresh lemon juice for this recipe. If you prefer you could substitute bottled lemon juice.
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to serve Pea Feta Dip:

My favorite way is to serve with some homemade pita chips for dipping. This dip is also great with some sliced veggies like cucumber, bell pepper or carrot sticks.

The pea feta dip also makes a great spread for sandwiches in place of hummus or cream cheese. Pair it with some sprouts or cucumbers on some pumpernickel bread for a chilled sandwich for Summer months.

Can Pea Feta Dip be made in advance?

Absolutely, as this dip is best served chilled, it can easily be made in advance, doing so will also give the flavors more time to blend. When stored in an air-tight container, the dip will keep well for several days.

How to Make Pea Feta Dip without a Food Processor

If you do not have a food processor, you can make this dip in a blender by pulsing the contents until they reach the desired texture.

What to serve with Pea Feta Dip

Pea feta dip is a tasty and healthy snack or appetizer that pairs well with a variety of accompaniments. Here are some ideas for what to serve with pea feta dip:

  1. Crudites: Serve the dip with a colorful selection of fresh vegetables like carrot sticks, celery, cucumber, and bell peppers. This will add crunch and freshness to the dish.
  2. Pita chips or bread: Pita chips or toasted bread like baguette slices are a great accompaniment to pea feta dip. You can also brush the bread with garlic and olive oil before toasting for extra flavor.
  3. Crackers: Savory crackers like whole wheat crackers, rice crackers, or sesame crackers are also a great option to serve with pea feta dip.
  4. Olives: Add some extra flavor by serving the dip with a selection of olives. The saltiness of the olives will complement the creaminess of the dip.
  5. Roasted or marinated vegetables: Roasted vegetables like cherry tomatoes, bell peppers or marinated artichoke hearts can be a great addition to the platter and also go well with the flavors of the pea feta dip.
  6. Grilled meats or fish: Pea feta dip can also be used as a sauce for grilled meats or fish. Try serving it alongside grilled chicken skewers, lamb kebabs, or grilled shrimp.
