Sun-dried Tomato and Chevre Cheese Pate

 This is another nice way to say “welcome and we are delighted you are here”.

This will serve quite a few guests, but if serving  only 4, this is ample.

  • 3 oz. sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 8 oz. soft goat cheese (Chevre)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • Fresh chopped basil
  • Fresh Ciabatta bread, cut into 16 pieces

Place three-quarters of the tomatoes and goat cheese in a blender and blend until ALMOST smooth. Add the balance of the tomatoes and blend only to break up the tomatoes, allowing for texture.

Transfer to a bowl and add the pecans and mix well. Turn out into a pate dish.

To serve, sprinkle fresh basil on top of the pate and surround with toasted bread on a small platter.

Again, pretty cocktail plates with cloth napkins and spreader knives will help each guest.
