with No Comments

This is particularly nice as a breakfast spread, but can be a spread or dip pretty much any time.

What you need

  • 500gms parsnips
  • 75gms Almette soft cheese
  • Zest of a whole lime (reserve a little for garnish)
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Half a small red chilli, de-seeded and chopped
  • Coarse ground black pepper

What to do

  1. Boil the parsnips in salted water till quite soft; strain; cool and then whiz in a food processor.
  2. Add the cheese, lime zest & juice; whiz to a smooth consistency.
  3. Add the chilli and black pepper to taste and give the briefest whiz to mix in.
  4. Quantities can be varied according to taste and something ‘less naughty’ or ‘more naughty’ can be substituted for the soft cheese.
