Hello lovers! How has Ramadan been going for you thus far? We’re already 9 days in and I cannot believe it’s going by so fast (but isn’t that what we say every year?)! Alhumdullilah (praise be to God), it’s going well for us. Our son has been going for Taraveeh (special night time prayers at the Mosque) almost every night with my husband, and he loves it. Our local Mosque has arranged a daycare for the kids for while the parents observe prayer, and he loves hanging out with his little buddies there.
I’ve been trying to keep things interesting for Iftar (break-fast time), and I finally got a chance to modify some of this delicious Creamy Herb Spread from The Comfort of Cooking. It’s an amazingly creamy and flavorful spread that can be used to fill veggies (like mini peppers or cucumbers!), and would also be amazing as a spread used for tea sandwiches. It’s versatile and keeps well in the fridge, and is a fun departure from traditional finger goods!
Creamy Herb Spread
Yield: 1 – 1 ¼ Cups
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk (by hand or mixer) until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a piping bag and use as needed.
Leftovers must be refrigerated.
