Chives and garlic spread

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Chives-spreadMake a simple chives spread with herbs fresh from the garden.

This spicy herb spread is quick to make and pretty to boot with chive flowers sprinkled on top. You might be lucky to find chive flowers at farmers’ markets, but usually you’ll have to grow your own to get them. Chives bloom in summer. Snip them off as you need them. The flowers are edible and have a delicate onion flavour.

¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper (optional)
Additional chopped chives and flowers for serving
