Why You’ll Love Whipped Goat Cheese

Whipped Goat Cheese… This recipe isn’t like a regular dip, it’s a cool dip (had to do a mean girls reference lol). It really is so good, along with the melty tomatoes and the garlic chips, it really is to die for. The garlic chips add that crispy element and it makes it so much better. Topping it with crushed red peppers and honey creates a perfect balance between spicy and sweet and the combination is amazing.

Whipped Goat Cheese & Tomatoes

How To Prepare Whipped Goat Cheese

🧄 First, slice the garlic super thin. Preheat your pan with the olive oil for 1 minute on medium, add garlic slices and lower heat to medium low. Fry until they become a pale golden color. If you do more than this, they can burn and be bitter.

🍅 Secondly, Poke a hole in your tomatoes so they don’t burn your mouth when you eat them.

🔥 Remove garlic from oil and let sit in a paper towel. In that same oil add shallots and tomatoes, cook on low until they are all melty. About 10 minutes.

🧂 Whip your goat and cream cheese together with a pinch of salt.

🌶 Lastly, spread dip on a plate, add the tomatoes/shallots, garlic chips, honey, basil, lemon zest, flaky salt and crushed red peppers.

Substitutions and Variations for Whipped Goat Cheese

  1. If you aren’t a fan of goat cheese, you can use feta, or heck… full on cream cheese.
  2. You can use onion instead of shallot.
  3. I like to add crushed red peppers to add a little bit of spice, but you can leave it out.
  4. Basil can be swapped for any of your favorite herbs.
