Hmmm, my gut response is no. I've heated cream cheese just briefly in the micro and it curdled. But try just one, (like a Tablespoonful or a Teaspoon so you don't waste much if it doesn't work) to see for sure. If it works let us know!!can i use cream cheese flavored with basil and oregano?
That's usually made with chickpeas (garbanzo beans), which are pretty packed with carbs. I can't eat hummus without going high. My husband, who is not diabetic but is eating LC to lose weight and for better health, eats it but makes sure he watches his portion control. Most around here are 3 grams to 5 grams or so, of carbs, per 2 tablespoon serving. When he eats it, he measures it so that he's sure to watch portion control on it, due to the carb content. You'd have to check the brands you have there, and then test afterwards.Before i could read ur responses, i tried cream cheese. I mixed it with flax seed powder and dried basil and dried oregano. I microwaved it for 4 minutes and it was still very soft. After 2 more minutes, i gave up as they were still soft (though not as before) but when they cooled down they turned crisp. I enjoy eating them. I tried something else- kneaded a dough with flax seed powder and cream cheese and rolled ot out with my hand (like a roti). Added some dried basil, dried oregano and sesame seeds on top and microwaved for 5 minutes, then cut it into pieces and filled my snack box with it. Its not supremely tasty but i like dipping it into a herb sauce or sth and snacking on it.
On a seperate note, how does hummus work for you? We get a freshly made cup of hummus in the nature fresh store here and it looked really appetizing.
