There’s a reason everyone has been raving about goat cheese lately. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also one of the healthiest cheese options. Plus, it shines in a variety of meals. Here are a few popular ways to use it.
3 Tasty Goat Cheese Recipes
1. Make a Pizza
If you’re trying to cut down on junk food, a delicious pizza can be your downfall. But if you substitute mozzarella with goat cheese, which has less fat, your pizza becomes healthier. Use whole-wheat dough and experiment with other flavorful, nutritious toppings like pesto, garlic, arugula, or kale.
2. Pair It With Veggies
Wrap grilled veggies of your choice—whether that’s peppers, onions, lettuce, or tomato—in a low-carb tortilla with goat cheese for a delicious side or snack.
Flavor it with salt, garlic, and onion, and the cheese can also be a creamier, healthier replacement for ranch dip on a veggie plate.
3. Use It as a Cream Cheese Substitute
If you love a good spread on your bagel or toast, goat cheese works just as well as cream cheese. The change won’t be jarring either since they have similar textures.
You don’t have to add anything special to make it delicious. Prepare your bagel as you normally do, whether you add vegetables, salmon, or just eat it plain. The goat cheese works with it all.
