I went to Whole Foods mostly get some fresh flowers, because they make me happy. Everything may be all gray and wintry outside, but inside it certainly doesn’t need to be. While I was at whole foods, I came across this great deal for feta cheese in a HUGE container for only 5 dollars. So I knew that in addition to fresh flowers I would have to make something with my feta. Making something, while also repressing the need to do productive things (aka not waste time cooking). So I decided to make a simple feta black bean dip. A colorful kitchen of flowers, and a tasty dip make for a pretty great day.
1 can black beans
1/2 cup feta
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 white or red onion, chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 pinch white pepper
salt to taste
dash lemon juice
(and, if you’re feeling spicy, a dash of cayenne)
Lightly stir all ingredients in a glass serving dish. This is a simple cold dip, so no need to fuss with the oven or a food processor. Serve with tortilla chips. The next day I used the leftovers to make another easy meal by turning the dip into quesedilla filling.
