Ingredients

  • 10 oz. 275 g goat cheese
  • 4 tablespoons 60 ml pumpkin seeds
  • 2 oz. 50 g butter
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 oz. 75 g baby spinach

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Put slices of goat cheese in a greased baking dish and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  3. While the goat cheese is in the oven, toast pumpkin seeds in a dry frying pan over fairly high temperature until they get some color and start to pop.
  4. Lower the heat, add butter and let simmer until it turns a golden brown color and a pleasant nutty scent. Add balsamic vinegar and let boil for a few more minutes. Turn off the heat.
  5. Spread out baby spinach on a plate. Place the cheese on top and add the balsamico butter.

Tip!

This dish can easily be customized to be served as an appetizer. Buy a smaller version of the goat cheese that you cut into slices and gratinate the same way just for a shorter period of time. They are ready when they get some color on the top.
