Gourmet Goat Cheese

Gourmet Goat Cheese

Easy entertaining 

Now I don't know about you all, but I have a bit of an infatuation with goat cheese. Besides my conviction that it's absolutely delicious, I also love the fact that I have actually seen my fair share of goat's milked before. It's great having the opportunity to connect more closely to the source of ones favorite foods! 

Goat Milking Expo! 

Now I am a fan of goat cheese on it's own, but my absolute preference is when you can doll it up a bit and compliment that almost sour nature of goat cheese with something rich and almost sweet. 

So here is my favorite goat cheese recipe, not only for taste but also, in particular, for aesthetics. It's one of my  favorite "go-to" entertaining / date night dish. 

Gourmet Goat Cheese Recipe

1/2 cup of raw cashews 
1 tsp sunflower oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 roll of goat cheese (preferably without the wax)
Serve with:
Dehydrated Swiss Chard chips or Broccoli (Winter)
Cucumbers and Zucchini slices (Summer)  

1. Heat oven to 350F
2. Next chop the cashews until they resemble the size of chickpeas. 
3. place in a bowl and mix with sunflower oil and salt. 
4. place on a baking pan and roast for around 10 minutes, shaking the pan after 5 minutes and keeping an eye on them. Once they have lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool
5. While the cashews are cooling, take your goat cheese and using your hands, roll into a large ball. 
6. Place Roasted cashews on a plate or in a large bowl and begin gently rolling the cashews 
7. Once the goat cheese ball is completely covered in cashews, plate up and serve with vegetables of choice. I mentioned Romaine lettuce, Celery, cucumber and Zucchini, but Asparagus, Broccoli (especially roasted) would be great as well! 

Enjoy my dears! 

Sending love, happiness and Low G indulging your way!
