I recently went to this salon de l’agriculture in Paris which hosts pretty much every single food from France. So, buying goat cheese was really really really exciting and given I have been experimenting with sourdough bread a lot these days, I ended up making a toastie.
A toastie is basically a fabulous slice(or two) of bread toasted to perfection with amazing toppings and cheese (primarily molten). If you ever visit Amsterdam, be sure to order these! For this version of my toasties, I did not use molten cheese as I wanted to keep it fresh and instead used edamame, peas, goat cheese+cream cheese and a little yuzu drizzle. (Yuzu is this amazing Japanese citrus fruit which is basically quite like a lime but with orange flower notes.)
So, how do you make it?
Cook some par-boiled edamame and peas (or buy pre-cooked ones) with little mint leaves, chilli (if you prefer) and sunflower seeds.
Slather some Philadelphia cream cheese on a perfect sourdough toast, crumble some goat cheese on top and drizzle some yuzu juice! (If you cannot find yuzu, drizzle a few drops of kaffir lime, or basic lime juice.)
I threw in some salad flowers for some fancy-schmancy but don’t care if you got none.
