Late Summer Roasted Tomato + Goat Cheese


Cherry Tomatoes

3 cloves garlic, roughly sliced

Goat Cheese, plain or in your favorite savory flavor

Olive oil



A loaf of rustic bread



Toss the tomatoes in olive oil, salt and pepper and slices of freshly peeled garlic.

Roast for 15 minutes at 425 degrees or until the tomatoes begin to soften and collapse and are slightly caramelized.

Meanwhile, break up pieces of goat cheese onto a small platter.  If goat cheese isn’t your thing, feel free to substitute with any soft cheese of your choosing.

Once the tomatoes are done, pour tomato and olive oil mixture over the cheese, allowing it to melt and blend.

Spread generously over your favorite crusty bread and enjoy!
