Savory Whipped Cream

Um who says whipped cream has to be for dessert dishes only?
Its those "they" people at it again isn't it?!

Well, I'm stickin it to "them" tonight.

Where did this come from you ask?  My lack of fridge ingredients is what happened.
No sour cream, no cream cheese, no yogurt.
I needed something for a burrito dish I was preparing and for some strange reason I had an abundance of whipping cream (yet none of the others listed above, go figure).

This recipe happened to be a Greek variation but you could mix up the spices to suit your dish.
Dollop it on a cream soup perhaps?
Possibilities are endless.
Try it out!

I'm Listening to: Amber, 311

  1. This is brilliant! Though I love a lightly sweet whipped cream for desserts....this would so perfectly take the place of sour cream or creme fraiche for so many savory purposes! And think of all the possibilities with this one! Looks great!

  2. This is great..I love this recipe of yours, who need cheese now:))
