Not much philosophy is needed to serve soft goat cheese. Still, I like it with something sweet the most. And in this recipe, I used dried apricot, but you might want to try it with another dried fruit also, prunes for example. The most important thing is not to add too much fruit because we want the taste of cheese to dominate. Chives and tarragon go great with it. I also LOVE how cute it is served as a savory truffles!
Goat Cheese Truffles with Dried Apricots and Chives
300 g soft goat cheese
6 dried apricots
2 heaped teaspoons finely chopped chives
salt and pepper
roasted salted pistachios
roasted salted peanuts
Finely chop apricots and mix them with goat cheese and chives. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Coarsley chop pistachios and peanuts, but put them in separate bowls.
Form truffles out of cheese and alternately coat them into pistachios and peanuts.
Cool in the fridge before you serve it.
