If you’ve ever wondered what to do with roasted bell peppers, this red pepper toast is it. it’s sublimely delicious and so easy to put together!
Sometimes photos just don’t do recipes justice. Even with my pretty foolproof kitchen setup and my props, there are a few dishes that just don’t photograph well no matter how delicious they really are.
I’m over the moon excited that this roasted bell pepper toast with herbed goat cheese isn’t one of them. The vibrant colors of the fresh herbs and the roasted bell peppers pop immediately and still have me salivating for these toasts!
Roasted Red Pepper Toast
This recipe comes together so fast and is great as part of a quick dinner with a salad or as a last minute appetizer for guests. You can grab everything at the store and have a beautiful and delicious offering in no time.
The best part is that because the toast is meant to be served at room temperature, you can leave them out without losing flavor – just be sure to cool the toast on a wire rack to release excess moisture.
I’m a big fan of Trader Joe’s for inexpensive but tasty cheese – no surprise given my Trader Joe’s charcuterie board!
Just as easily, you can also pick up a loaf of their multigrain bread, fresh herbs, goat cheese and a jar of roasted red peppers for this recipe.
You could also roast bell peppers yourself. No matter the path you choose, you’ll end up with a delicious dish.
Herbed Goat Cheese Spread
Herbed goat cheese sounds fancy, tastes phenomenal, and is impossibly easy to make. I like to add yogurt to my goat cheese to make it even easier to spread/dip. You can add a dash of milk or cream, however, for the same consistency.
Adding in fresh herbs, lemon zest, or pretty much anything your heart desires (sweet or savory) is so easy. Add your flavors a little at a time and taste it as you go to get it just right!
