Like a Boursin with garlic and herbs


Like a Boursin with garlic and herbs
It is quite easy to make your own garlic and herb cream cheese, rather like the well-know Boursin. It's fresh, much better, of course, and delicious, especially with a piece of toast.

Stage 1 - 10 min.

Mash 125 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.

Tip all this into the cheese, salt lightly (how much will depend on the saltiness of the cheese you are using), pepper generously and mix well.

Check seasoning.

Stage 7 - 5 min.

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.
