Many people know that I have converted so many commercial dips just by taking photos of the ingredients on the containers in the supermarket and then coming home and just ‘winging’ it to see if I can replicate them to be made in the Thermomix.
I was asked by a liker on my ThermoFun facebook page if I could try and convert a very well known popular commercial dip – it was the Olive Medley & Feta Dip. Now this one I have to admit was a little challenging to replicate, simply because I had never tried the commercial one and nor do I like olives!
Anyway I made it and if I was an olive eater I was fairly sure I’d “nailed it”. However to be on the safe side I did ask a few ThermoFun Club Members to test the recipe out for me. I also asked the facebook page liker, Alexia, to test it out for me and she said it was spot on! Alexia also said “I’m a huge fan – lets just say I ate this for breakfast this morning haha”. 🙂
- 70g black pitted olives (can be a mixture of black and green olives)
- 55g mayonnaise
- 30g Greek feta
- 5g lemon juice
- ¼ tsp oregano
- ¼ tsp thyme
- ¼ tsp Italian Mixed Herbs
- sprinkle black pepper
- Place all ingredients into TM bowl and chop 3 sec / speed 5.
- Scrape down and repeat until desired consistency.
This dip is best made in advance, as it does need a few hours in the fridge to ‘set’.
If your olives are pitted olives you can remove the pits in the thermomix: count olives into TM bowl, process for 5 sec / Speed 4 / reverse. Check bowl and repeat if necessary. Remove olive pits and make sure there’s one for every olive you counted in (to avoid broken teeth!)
