Cream Cheese Garlic Dip w/Furikake

This cream cheese garlic dip with Furikake is what dip dreams are made of!  This dip is so addicting we probably should have named it Furikake crack dip!

Like I have mentioned in many of my previous blog posts, most of our recipe creations come from cravings we have.

And usually these cravings come when the kids have finally gone to bed.  This is when I’m most relaxed, and when I’m relaxed, I like the snack!

On this particular night, we had leftover baked low carb tortilla chips that I didn’t want to go to waste but we ran out of our usual Sour Cream and Onion Crackdip.

So naturally, I went into my fridge and immediately see cream cheese and garlic and a light bulb went off.

As I started to mix the cream cheese and garlic together, I realized that adding some Furikake in probably wouldn’t hurt so I did and POW I was like, This IS it!!

It was creamy, garlicky and the Furikake added a powerful umami kick to it.

The flavors of the cream cheese, garlic and Furikake mix went so well together.  We knew had to share it with all of you!

This is a perfect and simple dip to enjoy during a party, sports game or if you’re like us, during your golden hour!   Hope you enjoy it!

This dip is low-carb/keto friendly with ~5g of carbs for the entire batch!  Since this is a dip though, the serving sizes will vary on the individual.

The texture on this dip is creamy and dense, with hints of garlic and sweet and savory of the Furikake mixed in.

Furikake, for those that aren’t familiar, is a Japanese seasoning usually topped on rice but can used with other recipes with a little creativity!  There are many different variations, but they typically contain seaweed, sesame, sugar, and salt.

The special ingredient needed for this recipe is only Furikake, which can be picked up on Amazon or a local Asian Supermarket.  You will also need a hand/stand mixer to mix the cream cheese.

Now, let’s get started!

6) Grate garlic with a grater or a garlic press and place into a mixing bowl.  Note – it is very important to grate or press and NOT mince garlic here.  Mincing doesn’t express the garlic oil enough, which is where the majority of garlic flavor comes from.

7) In the mixing bowl, add block of cream cheese and Furikake.  Using a hand/stand mixer, mix for about 1 minute until the cream cheese is broken down into a dip like texture.
