Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich with Whipped Feta has fluffy sourdough bread piled with layers of fresh vegetables, hummus, and whipped feta. This is my go-to lunch right now – light, fresh, and flavorful!
This Veggie Sandwich with Whipped Feta was inspired by my favorite sandwich at Panera, their Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich. I've always loved how fresh and flavorful it was. I never realized how easy it was to make at home. I made one minor adjustment to the sandwich, though, and used whipped feta instead of regular feta. I think it really intensifies the flavor!
Whipped Feta- I've seen whipped feta made with a food processor by pulsing the feta into small crumbs then adding in the cream cheese. With this method, you would puree it for 4-5 minutes, scraping down the sides when necessary. I don't have a food processor. I don't have space for one in my tiny apartment, so I used a handheld blender with a whisk attachment instead. It worked perfectly! The trick is the have both the cream cheese and feta cheese be room temperature. I will confess I did cheat once and microwave the cold cheese for 20 seconds on 20% power to take the chill off. It totally worked!
