Using typical Spanish ingredients, this tapas dish is quick and easy to prepare and has a deliciously smoky, yet salty taste. Roasted garlic and paprika are mixed with fresh, soft goat cheese, then spread over rustic bread and topped with sun-dried tomatoes and capers.
- Remove goat cheese from refrigerator and allow the goat cheese to warm to room temperature.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. A toaster oven is good for this. Place the garlic cloves, unpeeled on a pan and drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the top. Place in oven hot oven and roast until garlic is soft – approximately 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
- Add the paprika to the goat cheese and mix. Squeeze the roasted garlic into the cheese. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil and mix. The cheese will turn a pinkish-orange color.
- Cut baguette into slices about a 1/3-inch thick. Spread cheese mixture on each slice. Place sun-dried tomatoes and a caper or two onto each slice of bread.
