Boursin-Style Cheese with Pumpkin Seeds, Fig and Rosemary

by Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

This French style Boursin-inspired cheese spread is quite simple to make, and the flavors are top notch on your favorite crackers or crudite. It is also good spread on a piece of grilled chicken  or fish where it mingles with those flavors in lieu of a sauce.

Quick to put together, it does improve as it sits in the fridge (as most cheese spreads do), but even right away it is very good.  I like the crunch of the crispy pumpkin seeds and the sweetness of the fig combined with the slight aromatic nature of rosemary, which I think has a little bit of a pine needle scent. Dry rosemary won’t do in this at all, since rosemary as a fresh herb loses almost everything when it is dried. I keep a rosemary plant in the house at all times to keep me in stock for my needs during cold weather months. I find them easy to grow and they grow quite a bit!

The crackers in the photo are the sesame thins sold at Trader Joe’s if you’re interested. I occasionally buy those (one of the things I like from there) especially if I plan to make hummus, since they go superbly there. But as easily this could be serves with freshly chopped raw vegetables if you like.
