A Glug of Oil

Good and tasty recipes, home cooking comfort foods such as cottage pie, cheesy baked pasta, casserole and slow cooker dishes.

Goat's Cheese Ciabatta Sandwich

Goat's cheese with roasted tomatoes on ciabatta is perfect for lunch, brunch or a cheeky snack.

This yummy ciabatta is just the very thing, and the best bit is it's ready to eat in under 10 minutes. Although I did already have some roasted tomatoes.

Goat's Cheese Ciabatta Sandwich

I used 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 tasting tomatoes, seriously.

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 tomatoes, 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

I then 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 a toasted ciabatta 😋

How to Roast Tomatoes

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).

Slow-roasted them for about an hour on 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, goat's 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.

Ingredients

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 or so by which time they will be nicely toasted.

Remove the ciabatta and leave it 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!

I was making pasta sauce so I pinched a few tomatoes to make this. But of course, if you're not making pasta sauce you could always drizzle a few tomatoes with a tiny amount of olive oil and heat in a frying pan to speed things up.
