If there’s one recipe that’s a hit at every dinner party, it’s my spicy roasted potatoes with whipped feta. And what’s more, it’s a super easy recipe, ready in less than 30 minutes! 

Spicy Roasted Potatoes with Whipped Feta 

The thing I love about this dish is the contrast between the creamy whipped feta and the delicious crispy potatoes, and above all, I add fresh herbs on top to give it a fresh dimension.

Frankly, this dish is so good, I sometimes just make it for a quick evening meal. But as I said, you can also serve it for a special occasion, and it’s a really crowd pleaser!

Ingredients and Alternatives

For the roasted potatoes

ingredients to make spicy roasted potatoes
  • Potatoes: I like using new potatoes for this recipe because they don’t need to be peeled. You can choose other types of firm-fleshed potatoes.
  • Spices: I season my potatoes with smoked paprika, chili powder, ground coriander, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Get creative with spices: cumin, harissa or fennel pair well with this recipe. For a Mediterranean touch, opt for dried herbs like oregano, thyme, or rosemary.
  • Olive oil: Use it to roast the potatoes and add a drizzle just before serving!

For the whipped feta

ingredients to make a whipped feta dip
  • Feta: Choose high-quality feta as a base for the cream. Don’t forget to reserve some for decoration.
  • Yogurt: I use Greek yogurt, but you can opt for another type. Be mindful of texture, which may be more liquid. In that case, reduce the quantities.
  • Crème fraîche: I add a bit of crème fraîche to make the feta sauce creamier, but it’s optional. You can simply replace it with sour cream, more Greek yogurt or cream cheese if you like.
  • Lemon: To season the whipped feta. Also, you can grate some lemon zest and add it to the dip of simply for decoration on top. 

For garnish

  • Spring onions: I love adding these on top before serving. Don’t forget them; they’re really excellent.
  • Parsley: I also add flat parsley for freshness too. You can choose other fresh herbs like fresh basil, dill, or tarragon according to your preferences.

Roasting the Potatoes (2 methods)

Start by cutting the potatoes in half, or more if needed, to ensure they’re all the same size. If they’re clean, there’s no need to peel them!

Then, toss them in a bowl with olive oil, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, ground coriander black pepper and salt. Mix well to coat them evenly with oil and spices.

Meanwhile, pour the feta, Greek yogurt, sour cream, and lemon juice into the bowl of a food processor.

Season with salt and blend until you have a creamy sauce.

Geraldine’s tip: If the whipped feta is too liquid, add more feta. If it’s too thick, add more yogurt.
