I am and always have been the biggest fan of toast.  It’s the most perfect and versatile blank canvas that works well for any time of day.    Whether it’s avocado, eggs or something a little sweeter - there are truly endless opportunities for greatness here.  Especially on those days where we really only have time to slap something on a piece of bread.  It doesn't always happen to be joyless - sometimes you just need a pretty radish.

Herbed Goat Cheese & Radish Tartines (Gluten-free) Serves 2 

  • 4 slices gluten-free bread, toasted
  • 1 raw garlic clove
  • 3-ounces goat cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 sprigs fresh dill, de-stemmed & minced
  • 4 sprigs flat-leaf parsley, de-stemmed & minced
  • 4-5 radishes, sliced thin (use mandolin or paring knife)*
  • Microgreens, to top
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • Sea salt, to taste

When your bread is toasted & still warm, rub raw garlic clove evenly over each slice.  Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, stir together goat cheese, lemon zest and fresh herbs until evenly combined.  Spread herbed goatcheese evenly across each toast.  Layer with sliced radish and top with microgreens.  Season with flaky sea salt and freshly cracked pepper.  Serve immediately.

*Note: I used green meat & watermelon radishes, but feel free to use any radish variety you can find. They're all good!
