The Amazing Sandwich: Herbed Farmers Cheese

Everyone knows my life revolves around food.  Lunch is one of my favorite meals and I love to get creative with sandwiches, pitas, grilled anything… I actually welcome a challenge.

A couple of weeks ago, a MOMables subscriber emailed me to ask me what she could do with farmer’s cheese.  Her neighbor has goats and gives her a container almost every week.  She mentioned that she has grown tired of the plain flavor and texture.

My grandmother, was a HUGE fan of farmer’s cheese.  It’s a soft white cheese made from goat, sheep, or cow’s milk that has a lot of live bacteria; therefore, loaded with good for you properties.   She used to make an herb version but sadly, I never wrote it down.  After days of scouring Google and purchasing over 6lbs of farmers cheese, I found a recipe that is worth sharing.  It was…heavenly.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup farmer cheese
  • 3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt, preferably Greek
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt, dash of pepper

Directions:

Stir cheese and yogurt in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and herbs. Season with salt and pepper; stir. Cheese spread can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 week.

Spread over your favorite bread slices and sandwich it up! It’s delicious with thick slices of ripe tomatoes and turkey.
