Goats Cheese with Roasted Tomatoes on Ciabatta

Goats cheese with roasted tomatoes on ciabatta; well actually British piccolo tomatoes although of course you can use any baby tomatoes. But with that said the sweetness of these piccola tomatoes I can't begin to describe. Absolutely the best tomatoes, seriously.

Goats Cheese with Roasted Tomatoes on Ciabatta

A couple of weeks back to celebrate British Tomato Fortnight with the British Tomato Growers Association I was lucky enough to be sent a lot of lovely tomatoes. Honestly I had that many at first I didn't know what I was going to do with them all. But of course apart from enjoying them in salads etc I also served some with sliced and Halloumi with Honey and Sweet Pepper Flakes

Then I roasted some in a low oven to make pasta sauce for the freezer. But once they emerged from the oven I couldn't resist popping a few into toasted ciabatta 😋

So simple yet so delicious. I drizzled the tomatoes with a tiny bit of olive oil, threw in a few garlic cloves (in their skin) and slow roasted them for about an hour on a really low heat; 150C/300F or Gas 2 check on them in the last 15 minutes since the last thing you want is for them to burn.   

Ciabatta, goats cheese and a few of these gorgeous roasted tomatoes is all you need; it's amazing how just a few ingredients can make such an easy lunch. 

Roasted Tomatoes

Serves 2
Olive oil for drizzling
2 x Ciabatta rolls - sliced
125g soft Goats cheese
a few roasted tomatoes
a few freshly snipped chives

Method:
Heat up a grill pan till it's nice and hot. Drizzle each slice of ciabatta (on the inside part, not the crust) and lay them oil side down and leave for a minute of so by which time they will be nicely toasted.

Remove the ciabatta and leave to cool for a minute. Spread generously with goats cheese and top with a few roasted tomatoes and some freshly snipped chives.

That's it, job done!
