I can’t take credit for creating this yummy low carb garlic farmer’s cheese spread.  I had it once at my boyfriend’s parents house and well, I had to try to recreate it as soon as possible! It has become a staple at my house now.  Anytime I make sauteed or roasted pork chops, or grilled chicken, I also make this yummy garlic cheese spread to serve along side my protein.  I love dipping my roasted Brussels Sprouts in it!   Any leftovers from dinner, can be used as a veggie dip- I personally love dipping sliced radishes in this stuff, but celery would work too.

Keto Garlic Farmers Cheese Spread by Noreen’s Keto Kitchen!

Ingredients:

  • 7.5 ounce block of Farmer Cheese ( I use Friendship brand, pictured below)
  • Full Fat Sour Cream – about 2-3 heaping Tablespoons ( I mean the utensil and not the measuring spoon)
  • Low Carb Mayonnaise- 1 heaping Tablespoons ( I mean the utensil and not the measuring spoon)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of Salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon of Pepper, or to taste
  • 1 clove of fresh Garlic, crushed (This is pretty essential, garlic powder just won’t cut it here)

Instructions:

  • In a bowl, combine and mash with a fork, the farmers cheese, mayonnaise, salt, pepper & crushed garlic.
  • Mix in 2 heaping spoonfuls of the sour cream.
  • Stir well.  We are going for a consistency similar to Ricotta Cheese.  If it seems a little too thick add another spoonful of sour cream & mix well. 
  • And that’s it!  I like to refrigerate for a bit before serving to let the garlic come alive, but it’s not really necessary.
  • Serve with any meat, fish or poultry.  Leftovers can be used as a veggie dip- I personally love this dip with sliced radishes, but celery or cucumbers are good options too! 

Some Recipe Notes:

  • I use whatever low carb mayo I have on hand; which tends to be more Dirty Keto, because of the soybean oil.  I don’t fret too much since I don’t use mayo regularly.  If you are strict Keto, then use a Mayo that contains Avacado or Olive oil.
  • If you can’t find Farmer Cheese, there are tons of recipes on how to make it if you google “How to make Farmer Cheese”.  It looks super quick & easy to make.  But I buy mine at Stop & Shop or ShopRite, it’s generally located near the sour cream.

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!!!!  Tried and Tested From Noreen’s Keto Kitchen!!!!
