Vegetarian Tapas, Part II

Recipe Name: Queso de Cabra

Notes: Another of my favorite tapas recreated as best as I can.

Servings: 4

  • one 4 ounce log of goat cheese
  • one can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

Heat the olive oil in a medium pan over a medium flame. Add the finely chopped onion and crushed garlic, and saute for a four or five minutes, until the onion is transparent. Add the oregano, and then the tomatoes. Reduce the heat to low, and let it simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or so. Then take the sauce off the heat and pour it into a baking dish. place the goat cheese in the center of the baking dish, so it is surrounded by sauce. The sauce-to-cheese ratio should be such that about half of the cheese is submerged and half is not covered by the sauce. Place the baking dish in the center of the oven and bake at 425 degrees for twenty or twenty-five minutes. The cheese will be melty and maybe slightly brown on top when done. Serve directly in the baking dish. Serve with baguette slices.
