Serve with crusty/toasted bread, crackers, or raw veggies for dipping. Enjoy!
If you're making this recipe for a party, you can make the pumpkin whipped feta in advance (I'd say up to a day before!) Prepare the bread/dipping vehicles and add any toppings right before serving for optimal freshness.
Be sure to chill the dip at least 30-60 minutes before serving. This will help to firm up the dip!
You can serve this recipe as a dip (as pictured) OR you can serve it as crostini! If you’d prefer making crostini, simply slice up a baguette, toast the bread in the oven, spread whipped feta on each slice, and top with walnuts, fresh thyme, and a drizzle of honey.
*GLUTEN-FREE VERSION: The dip is naturally gluten-free, so you simply need to serve this with gluten-free crackers or bread.*LEFTOVERS: Leftovers will keep for a few days in airtight containers in the fridge. They taste great spread onto a sandwich or enjoyed as a dip for a snack ;)
