It is quite hectic at my end which is why the delay in everything from posting new posts to not being able to browse all the lovely blogs!Well, I am hoping it will get better by the middle of next week but then you never know what's in store!Do you?I will be brief this time although I would have loved to ..Tweet Tweet:D
Goat cheese, also known as Chevre in French, is a milk product derived from Goat’s milk. Although it can be made in different forms, both hard and soft, the soft goat cheese is more common. It can melt very easily when exposed to heat. This is a staple in the Mediterranean region and also common in Africa and Middle east.Goat cheese is closer to human milk in that it is lower in fat and a lot thinner when compared to Cow Cheese.Those who are lactose intolerant or have milk allergies can eat Goat cheese.
The recipe for goat cheese rounds is adapted from Food Network’s Ina Garten of Barefoot Contessa
A bag of Mixed salad greens
Red Onion thinly sliced
8 cherry tomatoes vertically cut into halves
2 carrots, finely grated
½ cup Cranberries, optional
I have used light Italian dressing but feel free to use the dressing of your choice.Make sure it is not too tarty like Rasberry Vinaigrette
For the cheese
1 (11-ounce) log plain or herbed Montrachet
2 extra-large egg whites, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
Fresh whole grain bread crumbs(You could use white bread)
Toss all the ingredients and the salad dressing.
Slice the cheese with a dental floss or a knife into a 1/2 inch thick slices.It is easy to do it with the floss.Dip each of the slices in the egg whites.Coat the slices with the bread crumbs.Refrigerate for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Melt a tbsp of butter and a tbsp of olive oil and heat it until it is just under smoking. Fry the cheese both sides until golden brown.Serve the salad with the warm cheese!
