A delicious dip to serve with vegetable crudités or small crackers when you have people round for drinks. You can use more or less any blue cheese you want, such as Roquefort or Stilton. Very quick to make in your blender.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: No cook, chill for 45 minutes – 1 hour
o 4tbsp cream cheese
o 1½ cups cottage cheese
o 3tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
o A little milk to ‘loosen’ the dip (you judge)
o ½ tbsp grated onion
o 2tsp fresh lemon juice
o 1tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
o Ground black pepper
o Selection of raw vegetables, sliced, such as carrot, celery, bell peppers, cucumber
o 1 large whole pepper (for the dip container)
Place all the ingredients into your blender (excluding the pepper container and your vegetables for dipping).
Blend on medium speed for about minutes, stopping every now and then to scrape any mixture down from the sides. Blend until smooth, season with ground black pepper and cover with plastic wrap.
Place in the fridge for up to an hour (or it will keep longer).
While the dip is chilling, remove the top/s from the bell pepper and clean out all the seeds. Take a small sliver of pepper off the bottom so that it will stand up.
When ready to serve, scoop the dip into the bell pepper container and display nicely on a plate with the vegetable crudités.
