Summer comes alive with toasted bread, smeared with herbed goat cheese, fresh tomatoes and basil.
Eight slices of good bread
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove
1/2 log of goat cheese
10 basil leaves
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh basil, finely chopped
balsamic fig sauce (optional)
Rub each slice of bread with the garlic clove. Brush a bit of olive oil on top of each slice and toast under the broiler for 3-5 minutes.
Combine the fresh herbs with the goat cheese. Add about 1 teaspoon of olive oil to make it easier to mix together.
Top each toast with a generous serving of goat cheese, a thinly slice tomato and a basil leaf.
If using, drizzle with the fig balsamic sauce.
