As a cheese-aholic I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate it into my recipes. These tartines are a doddle to make but look so tempting and won’t disappoint. Who can resist a golden bubbling round of goats’ cheese on crunchy sourdough topped with aromatic Thyme? Cut them into smaller slices for a quick Christmas canapé, perfect with a glass of sherry.
This recipe goes along with the herbs in Jekka's Winter Collection Herb Boxes.
- 2 figs
- 100 g goats’ cheese log
- Small bunch of Thyme
- 1 tsp honey
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 2 tbsp Olive oil
- Slice the figs and goats’ cheese into ½ cm rounds. Pick the thyme leaves from the stalk and reserve.
- Set your grill to high and toast the bread on one side. Remove the bread and brush the non-toasted side with olive oil.
- Layer the figs and goats cheese slices onto the bread and drizzle with honey. Place the tartines under the grill and toast until the cheese is bubbling and golden.
- Season with salt, pepper and scatter with thyme leaves for a fragrant finish.
