Goat Cheese and Pomegranate

21 Oct

Don’t you love fall? The crispness in the air, the magical light in sunsets and sunrises, Halloween and…plump pomegranates! I’ve been experimenting with pomegranate seeds and goat cheese, and came up with this beautiful appetizer. The best combination so far was with Capricho de Cabra (a fresh goat cheese from Spain, similar to the French chevre). The version in the photo was set over roasted sweet potato chips and sprinkled with mustard seeds. Pretty yummy and nutritious, but I must say I enjoyed more when I did it the first time, over gluten free crackers and sprinkled with poppy seeds. And please, make sure you save the pomegranate rind and dry it for later – it makes wonderful tea, rich with antioxidant properties and also known as a home remedy for nausea and coughing.
