Herbed Cream Cheese on Cress

Herbed Creamed Cheese on Cress-pinterest

This is a delicious herb feast!

(Another recipe from ‘Cooking for Today’)

If you haven’t got access to all the herbs, improvise by using more of those you have got.

Ingredients

1 punnet of mustard and cress
1 tablespoon each of the following herbs (chopped):
parsley
dill
chives
borage
lemon balm
basil
1 teaspoon chopped thyme
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon whipping cream
8oz/225g/1 cup of cream cheese
3oz/75g/ cup of butter

Method:

  1. Soften the butter and beat together with the cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Stir in the cream and lemon rind
  3. Peel and chop the garlic and stir into the cream cheese mixture with all the chopped herbs
  4. Place in a small bowl and chill for 4-5 hours.
  5. Wash the mustard and cress, drain well and arrange on a plate. Turn out the cheese mixture on top.

I like the idea of the herby cream cheese dressing – it would probably go well with lots of different salads.

Bon appetit!
