    In a food processor, combine the feta cheese and 1/4 cup of the remaining water in the package. Blend until smooth and creamy, around 1 minute. If the mixture is too thick, add a bit more of the water. If it is too runny, add a bit more feta cheese.

    In an even layer, spread the whipped feta onto a serving platter. Peel and discard the skin of the sweet potatoes and cut the flesh in half, lengthwise. Arrange the sweet potatoes over the whipped feta, drizzle with the Bomba, season with flaky sea salt, and top with the mint and dill. Serve immediately and enjoy!
