Zucchini Feta Dip
So this is the cousin of BABA GANOUSH, but instead of eggplant we are opting for the good green stuff: zucchini, which is a vegetable I just can’t get enough of. I also added feta to my dip, of course, because feta always makes it betta. Sorry I have to say that.
So your going to peel and then saute the small chunks of your zucchini in some olive oil to get rid of all the water it contains. This process takes about 10 minutes and you want to be careful and keep your heat on medium. Next let them cool in a plate for 10 minutes and then process them with the rest of your ingredients. Taste and adjust the salt if needed.

Zucchini Feta Dip
- drizzle olive oil
- chili pepper flakes
- parsley, chopped
- pine nuts
- Serve with toasted pita, chips or sliced bell peppers, carrots and celery sticks for dipping!
- Heat your oil in a large deep skillet, and then toss in the squash pieces. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Saute on medium for around 10 minutes to remove all the liquids/water from the vegetable. Transfer to a plate to cool 10 minutes.
- Drop the zucchini into your food processor along with your feta, garlic, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, parsley, paprika and salt and pepper to taste. Pulse until smooth, and taste to see if any salt needs to be added. Once you transfer to your bowl, garnish with olive oil and chili pepper flakes. Enjoy with some toasted pita, sliced bell pepper, carrots sticks, celery sticks or tortilla chips for dipping.

Hi love your recipes.
Can you tell me how many cups 3 lg zucchini would actually be approximately?
Hi Wendy, I’m gonna say about 5 cups diced zucchini…
And thank you for the kind message!
It should fill a large deep skillet. Keep in mind they will reduce in size as they cook down.
Made this tonight and served with grilled chicken breast, cucumber spears, cherry tomatoes, olives, and pita. Delicious!!
Also – I didn’t bother peeling the zucchini 😄
Hi Ana, love that you didn’t peel the zucchini! And it sounds delicious with the chicken etc!!!! Thanks for the review!
