This is a recipe my sis and me came up with as a quick and healthy dip for a busy weeknight. It is creamy and has a lovely fresh taste from the bell pepper, while the roasted sunflower seeds add a great depth of flavour. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Heat a frying pan til quite hot. Dont add any oil or fat.
  2. When the pan is hot add in the sunflower seeds and roast them for a few minutes until they start to brown. They will smell roasty when theyre ready and have a nice brown shimmer.
  3. Set aside.
  4. In a high rimmed bowl combine feta cheese, garlic powder, bell pepper and rosemary if using. Add sunflower seeds. Puree using a hand held blender until it has a nice creamy consistency. There will still be chunks, but thats ok.
  5. Season with freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  6. Enjoy!

I almost always have all the ingredients for this recipe on hand, so I made a double batch to take to Friday night drinks at work. Everyone loved it and I brought home an empty bowl. The rosemary is an important addition. Thanks for sharing your creation.
