If you love the French Boursin, you’ll love this recipe! You can use either kefir cheese or cream cheese for the base.

Below are ingredients, books and kitchen tools that can be used in this recipe and ordered from Amazon:


1 clove garlic, crushed

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup homemade kefir cheese or cream cheese

2 Tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan cheese

1/4 tsp. dried dill or 3 tsp. fresh dill, chopped fine

1/4 tsp. dried basil

1/4 tsp. chives or green onions, chopped fine

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/8 tsp. dried thyme

1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped fine

1/2 tsp. sea salt

Place all the ingredients in a bowl or food processor. Mix with hand beaters or process until smooth.

I like to serve this homemade Boursin cheese with sourdough crackers and a glass of mead .

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging and were/are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
