Recipe type: salad
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 100g/3.5oz round of goats cheese (with rind, I use Capricorn English Goats Cheese)
  • 70g/2.5oz Wild Rocket (Arugula)
  • 10g/1/4oz Toasted Pine nuts
  • For the pesto:
  • 3 tbsp Parmesan, finely grated
  • 1clove garlic
  • 50g/2oz pine nuts
  • 40g/about 1.5 cups fresh basil
  • 5 - 6 tbsp olive oil
  • Extra olive oil and lemon juice for the dressing
Instructions
  1. divided the rocket (arugula) between 2 plates. Split the cheese in half lengthwise and place cut side up on grill pan. Smear a bit of olive oil over the cut surface and grill until just turning golden and bubbly.
  2. Toast the 10g of pine nuts in a dry fry pan shaking frequently until golden (careful, they burn easily).
  3. To make the pesto, add all pesto ingredients to a bullet blender and blend until finely chopped and blended. (This will keep in a jar in the fridge for a week). Take 2 tbsp of pesto and add lemon juice and olive oil to make a liquid consistency (about a tsp of lemon and 1-2 tbsp of olive oil).
  4. Place the grilled goats cheese on the greens, scatter with the toasted pine nuts and drizzle over the pesto dressing.
