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.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Remove goat cheese from refrigerator and allow the goat cheese to warm to room temperature.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
