Simple Summer Treats with Goat and Feta Cheese
The Guardian's Nigel Slater brings us two delightful, summery recipes featuring cheese and garden fresh veggies. Included are Slater's recipes for goat cheese and lemon thyme tartlets, a fresh radish and cucumber salad, and a grilled lamb with cool minted feta.
I really should cook more often with the mildly salty, snow-white sheep and goat's cheeses of which I am so fond. I did so twice this week – first in some little tartlets of thyme and cream, and then whipped up into a herb cream to accompany some grilled lamb cutlets. The first, a crusty goat's cheese, cream and grey with mould outside, white as chalk within, was crumbled into cream and egg for some goat's cheese tartlets. Seasoned with thyme leaves cut from the pot on the back porch, the biscuit-sized tarts were in the oven in a matter of minutes.
