Serves: 2 

  • 10 large garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 slices crusty bread (eg French bread or crusty rolls)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 75g spreadable goat's cheese

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Place the garlic cloves onto a baking tray without taking the skin off, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the insides are soft.
  2. Toast the bread slightly in the oven for 5 minutes so the bread is warm and slightly crispy.
  3. When cool enough to handle, scoop the insides of the garlic into a bowl. Add the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mash together.
  4. Take the bread out of the oven and spread the garlic mixture on the top side of both slices of bread. Spread a layer of goat's cheese on top and place it in the oven for another 5 minutes.


I would usually serve this with a nice salad with a tangy or sweet dressing to complement the goat's cheese.
