You can use this dip or spread in a variety of ways, but Hampshire recommends serving it with Neighbor's Mill Bakery & Café's (1435 E. Independence, Ste. 110, Springfield) naan, which is available by special order on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Recipe by Andy Hampshire, Chef-Owner at Farmers Gastropub
• 10 ounces Terrell Creek Farm Chèvre
• 4 ounces cream cheese
• 1 clove minced garlic
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 lemon juiced
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Add all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until very smooth.
Note: While the whipped chèvre is certainly flavorful enough to stand on its own, Hampshire loves topping it off with fresh rosemary and roasted almonds. But what really makes this dish stand out when he serves it at Farmers Gastropub is also the addition of his signature cumin roasted acorn squash and hot honey.
