Like a Boursin with garlic and herbs

Step by step recipe:

  1. 10 min.Like a Boursin with garlic and herbs : Photo of step #1
    Mash 250 g cream cheese with a fork.

    If you have the energy, pass it through a sieve with a maryse. This is more work of course, but it will be much smoother.

    Check seasoning.

    Serve with good bread, toasted (how I like it best) or not.

Remarks:

You can change the herbs to any you like, according to taste. Why not try coriander and chervil, for example, which is delicious.

For a stronger flavour, replace half the cream cheese with feta.

And to drink?

An easy-drinking white wine like a Muscadet.
