By making a vegan version of this recipe, those preferring a plant-based diet will be able to enjoy this flavorful cheese too! To veganize I've substituted equal amounts of Tofutti's Better Than Cream Cheese for the cream cheese and Earth Balance Original Spread for the butter. -LuAnn
Make your own boursin cheese at home. Very easy and economical too! It can be used to prepare other dishes with great success. -Recipezaar.
