  • 200g (7oz) pack low fat soft cheese
  • 2 tbsp 0% fat Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 celery stick, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped

1. Crumble the Stilton into a mixing bowl, then mash with a fork. Add the low fat soft cheese and yogurt, combining them together to make a semi-smooth pate.

2. Add the celery, spring onions and thyme or parsley. Season with a little black pepper, then serve with oatcakes, water biscuits or Melba toast.

Cook's tip: This pate easily translates into a dip by thinning it down with a little milk, to serve with fresh vegetable crudités. Excellent for summer packed lunches, buffets and picnics!
