This festive goat cheese boule makes a great hostess gift or portion a little bit out for yourself throughout the week. The healthy twist to this holiday ball? Firm tofu which provides plant-based protein and good for your gut, fiber-rich dried figs.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 20

  • 6 oz soft goat cheese
  • 4 oz Cheese, neufchatel
  • 4 oz Dried Figs
  • 4 kernels raw pistachios
  • 1 tsp Rosemary, fresh
  • 6 oz Tofu, Firm

DIRECTIONS

1 In a large bowl, with gloved or clean hands, combine goat cheese, Neufchatel, and tofu until well blended.
2 Fold in the figs and rosemary to evenly distribute. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3 Shape into a round boule and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to help firm shape.
4 Place pistachios in a large bowl, and gently rotate boule to cover in pistachios, applying light pressure as needed.
5 Place on a cheeseboard with a spreading knife and your favorite accompaniments such as almond crackers, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, fresh pears and honeycomb.
