Tomato, Basil, and Goat Cheese Tapas

You can prepare the tomato base ahead of time, add it to a dish with a slice of goat cheese in the middle and grill it in your wood oven until the cheese is melted/toasted. Serve on toast points.


  • 6 +/- peeled tomatoes (Roma work nicely), diced
  • 1/2 onion, chopped fine
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped fine
  • 2 tsp herbs de Provence
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, slivered
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Sauté the sauce to reduce the liquid and thicken it; about 10 minutes. You can make a lot of sauce ahead of time; it will keep fine in the refrigerator for another tapa.

Prepare toast points by slicing a baguette and toasting the slices. Butter with garlic butter (ali oli). These are served with the dish after roasting.


Place a hot layer of the tomato basil mixture in a small low-sided terracotta dish (6’) and place a slice of goat cheese in the middle. The sauce and the cheese should be about 1/2 inch thick.

Place in your wood oven under a nice flame until the goat cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Sprinkle with some fresh slivered basil.


Spoon onto the toast points and serve. Disappears quickly!
