  • 1 long baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices on the diagonal
  • Olive oil
  • 2 to 3 cups vegetables (we chose broccoli, red bell pepper & red onion)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Balsamic glaze or balsamic reduction
  • 1 (4-oz) log Roth Garlic Herb Chèvre goat cheese
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • Juice & zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 (4-oz) log Roth Plain Chèvre goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup soft candied ginger, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup candied lemon, finely diced
  • 1 (4-oz) log Roth Blueberry Vanilla Chèvre goat cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place baguette slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil on both sides. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven.

Garlic Herb Chèvre with Roasted Vegetables & Balsamic Glaze

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, toss vegetables in olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast 20 minutes or until vegetables are golden brown and slightly caramelized around the edges. Remove from oven.
  3. To assemble, spread about 1 tablespoon of Garlic Herb Chèvre on a toasted baguette slice. Top with roasted vegetables and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

Plain Chèvre with Strawberry Compote & Fresh Rosemary

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add strawberries, lemon juice, and zest. Mash strawberries slightly to release their juices. As they cook, strawberries will begin to break down, forming a compote-like texture.
  2. Let compote come to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in maple syrup and vanilla extract. Let cool. Compote will thicken upon standing.
  3. To assemble, spread 1 tablespoon of Plain Chèvre on a toasted baguette slice. Top with a spoonful of strawberry compote and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary.

Blueberry Vanilla Chèvre with Candied Ginger & Lemon

  1. To assemble, spread about 1 tablespoon of Blueberry Vanilla Chèvre on a toasted baguette slice. Top with a sprinkle of candied ginger and candied lemon bits.
