Flower & Herb Rolled Goat Cheese Recipe
Makes: 6 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Passive Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
- 1 (10-ounce) package goat cheese, room temperature
- 2 tsp chopped fresh basil, divided (you can also use oregano, rosemary, thyme)
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup organic edible flowers
- Crackers, for serving
- In a bowl, combine goat cheese, fresh basil, and black pepper.
- Grease your hands with olive oil and form a mixture into a 1-inch thick round disk.
- Wrap the disk tightly in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
- Remove plastic wrap and decorate with edible flowers as desired.
- Serve with your favorite crackers or toasted bread slices.
For the best results, remove the petals from the buds so they lay flat on the outside of the goat cheese ball.
Need another fun idea? Create small balls (about 3 to 4) out of the goat cheese mixture and cover with different flowers of the same color. This is a gorgeous addition to a charcuterie board.
The goat cheese ball can be chilled for up to 2 days before covering with edible flowers and serving.
