If you have downloaded TikTok than you probably have seen the Feta block pasta with Cherry Tomatoes. A viral video of a someone baking a block of feta, cherry tomatoes, olive oil and some herbs and spices. and mixing it with pasta has caught the eye of many, and for good reason! It’s a great idea and that is what inspired this appetizer. However, I couldn’t leave out my favorite ingredient, roasted garlic!

Ingredients
  

Feta Dip

  • 1 block Feta 7oz
  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Fresh Spinach
  • 1 head Garlic
  • 3 tbsp Cream Cheese
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Fresh Cracked Pepper

Pita Chips

  • 6-8 Pita Bread
  • 2-3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions
 

Roasted Garlic

  • Preheat one to 400°F.
  • Peel and discard the papery outer layers of the entire garlic bulb.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut 1/4 to off the top top of cloves.
  • Put garlic in baking pan cut side up so you can see the garlic cloves and drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  • Cover garlic clove with tinfoil and bake at 400°F 30-40 minutes, or until the cloves are lightly browned and feel soft if you press or poke them.
  • Once garlic is done, remove, let cool.

Feta Dip

  • Keep oven at 400°, Position rack in the middle of the oven.
  • In a pan that is at least 4×6, place feta block in the center of the pan, spread tomatoes around feta, drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut 3 tbsp cream cheese into small chunks and place throughout the dish on top of the tomatoes.
  • Bake for 30 minutes and then carefully take dip out of the oven. While cooking, prep Pita Chips.
  • Chop 1 cup fresh spinach and stir into dip. Place back into oven for 10 more minutes.
  • Once roasted garlic is done, squeeze roasted garlic out of it's shell and mash it into a paste.
  • Stir roasted garlic paste into dip and keep warm until Pita Chips are done.

Pita Chips

  • Cut Pita bread into 6 triangles each and put on a non-stick baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper and place in oven on bottom rack for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn Pita chips half way though. NOTE: Don't cook until super crispy. They will get more crispy once they cool. You want them slightly crispy on the outside but still soft in the middle.
  • Once golden brown, take out and serve warm or cold with the Spinach Feta Dip

Notes

  • Olive Oil: Substitute regular olive oil with garlic and herb or basil olive oil for additional flavor. 
  • Reheating: Reheat in oven or in microwave bowl.
  • Add spice by sprinkling with red pepper flakes.
  • If you don’t want to make the Pita Chips from scratch, you can buy Stacy’s Pita Chips as an alternative.
