Tasty Garlic & Herb DipSubmitted by: JEZWYN
IntroductionAfter eliminating breads from my diet, I still missed the taste of garlic bread. Now I've created an easy, low-carb alternative that fills that void! After eliminating breads from my diet, I still missed the taste of garlic bread. Now I've created an easy, low-carb alternative that fills that void!
As I am restricting carbohydrates in my diet, I use the full-fat versions of these cheeses, but if you are not watching carbs, you may like to use the low-fat versions
Cream Cheese - 225gm / 8 oz
Cheddar Cheese - 1 cup, grated.
Then select your favourite seasoning - I used a pre-made garlic and herb seasoning mix. If you are watching your carbs, be aware that most 'shaker' seasonings are made with a rice flour base or similar. A teaspoon is a good amount to start with.
You could also use fresh herbs in this recipe, but I would not recommend adding freshly crushed garlic to your cream cheese.
Roasted capsicum (bell peppers), diced finely
Toasted walnuts, crushed or finely chopped
Transfer to bowl and add any optional ingredients. Mix well.
Cover and place in refrigerator for a couple of hours to let the ingredients settle and flavour to develop.
Serve in a dipping bowl surrounded by chopped vegetables, or fill celery sticks with dip. To add a touch of class, sprinkle the top of the dip with toasted walnuts and add a sprig of parsley.
