Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoon Culinary grade lavender
    dried buds ground (mortar and pestle or spice grinder)
  • 12 oz Goat cheese
  • cup Kefir
    or just enough to be able to blend
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
    or to taste
  • Fresh cut vegetables or Crackers to dip
    Use veggies to keep low carb- perfect topping over cucumber slices
  • Sprigs of lavender and grated lemon zest. (If desired, you can drizzle your lemon lavender Goat Cheese Spread with a little raw honey - skip if diabetic or on a low carb diet)

Instructions

  • In either a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, grind up culinary grade lavender into a powder. (Make sure you are using culinary grade lavender and not English Lavender.)
  • In a food processer, add goat cheese, ground lavender buds, kefir, lemon zest, salt and blend until smooth.
  • Serve with fresh cut vegetables if keeping low carb. Also delicious with crackers and toasted crostini.
  • If not on a low carb diet, Lemon Lavender Goat Cheese Spread is delicious with a little drizzle of raw honey before spreading on a cracker.

Notes

Delicious with fresh cut veggies. If you are not watching your carbs then try with grilled crostini or crackers.
