Creamy Parsley Spread

I read that parsley promotes bone growth, so I have been thinking of ways to use fresh parsley ever since I had bunion surgery. The link to my surgery blog is near the bottom of this page in the sidebar, if you are interested in that. Parsley is also an excellent source of vitamin K and vitamin C, and a good source of vitamin A, folate, and iron!

I did not measure as I combined the following ingredients. Use a dollop or an entire package of cheese(s), depending on your needs, and then adjust the add-in flavors to suit the quantity used.


Ingredients

  • Low fat soft white cheese, such as cream cheese and/or goat cheese
  • Pinch dried thyme
  • Garlic, minced
  • Fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • Fat-free milk or fat-free half and half, optional
  • Whole-grain crackers or bread - I used Triscuit Cracked Pepper 
  • Cucumber(s), washed and thinly sliced
