Turkish Feta Meze Dip

I visited the most wonderful Anatolian Turkish restaurant in London over the Summer. It was one of those moments when everyone was so hungry we stopped at the first place we saw. The restaurant that we stumbled across was Tas.  We decided to order a few meze dishes, one of which was their "bademli peynir ezmesi", which means "almond butter cheese".

I reluctantly tried the dip, not being a fan of feta cheese, and I am so glad that I did, this has become one of my favourite foods. It is a simple dish to make and is packed full of flavour.

  • 400g feta cheese
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed 
  • 1/2 bunch of chopped parsley
  • 1/2 bunch of chopped coriander
  • 100g whole almonds, plus extra for serving

  • Place the olive oil, tomato paste and garlic in a pan and stir over a low heat until the garlic has softened and the ingredients have incorporated.
  • Remove the tomato mixture from the heat, and set aside to cool. Crumble the feta into a large bowl and stir in the tomato, garlic, olive oil mixture along with the parsley coriander and almonds.
  • Transfer into a serving dish and scatter over the extra almonds, serve with warm toasted pittas.
