Last night's dinner

Last night was one of those nights-finishing up a project, getting a frenzy of phone calls and trying to get dinner on the table before I rushed out the door to a class.  Frozen pizzas are tempting at these times, but it really doesn't take much time to throw together a fresher, healthier option.  Give a few fresh veggies a quick spin in a pan, then pile them onto a baguette with a big dollop of goat cheese, and you've got a quick and tasty dinner.
This is really more of a guide than a recipe, as I was in too much of a hurry to think about quantities and a formal recipe, but it goes something like this.  Adapt according to your preferences and what you've got in the fridge or your garden.

Veggie and Goat Cheese Baguette

1 mini baguette, sliced lengthwise and toasted
2-3 oz goat cheese
onions, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes-oh, about 1/4-1/2 cup of each

-saute veggies in 1 T olive oil until tender and slightly browned
-meanwhile, toast the baguette, then spread both sides with goat cheese
-add sauteed veggies (and maybe some fresh herbs if you've got them)
-slice and serve with a green salad, then hurry up! You're late for class!


  1. Yummy! Now that`s a nice, quick recipe.

  2. This sounds wonderful, Christine! I'll be adding it to my menu for next week! Many thanks for sharing.

  3. Great! This is so easy, yet somehow a bit "sophisticated" and very tasty....enjoy!
