Homemade Boursin

This is one of my go to appetizers.  It’s easy to whip up (everything goes in the food processor) and keeps for about a week in the refrigerator.

Homemade Boursin
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup fresh flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup fresh dill
1/4 cup fresh chives
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp Tabasco sauce
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
2 tbsp vegetable oil

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the garlic, herbs and zest until all finely minced. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until smooth. Keep in refrigerator and bring to room temperature for serving.

An Abundance of Parsley

I feel like I have parsley growing out of my ears! One of my favorite herbs, when planting my garden I thought I couldn’t plant enough of it! Well, I am here to tell you I have plenty.

Here is one of my favorite ways to use copious amounts of it. Though it’s traditionally used as a garnish for veal shanks, I think it’s great over grilled anything!

Hand-chopped Gremolata

1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2 tbsp finely chopped garlic
4 tsp lemon zest
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Toss all ingredients together and serve immediately.
