Albasha…

If you just read the title and became really excited, you are probably from Baton Rouge, LA. Albasha, a Greek and Lebanese restaurant, is a favorite among many locals. From the gyro, chicken shawarma, fried cheese, hummus and dressings, Albasha’s food is definitely a must if you are in the area.

Living in Baton Rouge, we ate Albasha at least twice a week, but now we have this dilemma…we live in the Dallas, TX and there is not an Albasha nor anything that we have found near us that compares. So when I discovered a recipe that taste extremely similar to one of the dressings they serve, I was pretty excited. And what kind of person would I be if I kept this amazing find to myself. Therefore, today I would love to share with you a whipped feta dipping sauce.

Whipped Feta Dipping Sauce: (adapted from We are not Martha, but we can try?)

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Feta
  • 1 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 t mint
  • 1 T lime
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Greek dried seasonings (I use Chef’s Greek Seasonings)
  • Salt and pepper per taste

Directions

Blend and serve. (I add some almond milk to help make the dip smoother.)

It is that easy! It can be used as a dressing or dip for meatballs or veggies. I usually serve it with jalapeño lime chicken meatballs, which are exceptionally yummy. They are one of my husband’s favorites as well as many of our friends. So if you are from Baton Rouge, have moved like our family, and need a little taste of Albasha, then make this recipe tonight. If you aren’t from Baton Rouge and need to understand the reason we miss this restaurant, then make this recipe tonight. I believe you will enjoy it as much as we do.
