Baked Goat Cheese With Spicy Tomato Sauce
Recipe By : Vegetarian Times, December 1997, page 47
Serving Size : 16 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Vegetables Appetizers
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 pinch sugar
3 cloves garlic -- minced
1 small serrano chile pepper
seeded and minced
1 pound vine or plum tomatoes
peeled and seeded and chopped
OR 1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes -- drained
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons dry white wine -- (optional)
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
8 ounces herb-coated goat cheese log
16 SERVINGS LACTO
Make an extra batch or two of the tomato sauce for your vegan friends to
spread on slices of bread or to serve with the Spice-Roasted Baby Potatoes.
The sauce freezes well.
In large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and sugar and
cook, stirring often, until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add
garlic and serrano chile and cook, stirring often, until mixture is medium
brown in color, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, orange juice and wine if
using. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 30
minutes. Add small amounts of water if mixture becomes too dry. Remove
from heat, stir in parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put goat cheese in small, shallow baking dish and surround with tomato
sauce (do not cover the cheese with sauce). Bake, uncovered until sauce
begins to bubble at edges and cheese is hot, about 20 minutes. Serve warm
with toasted baguette rounds.

Here's a good recipe for New Year's. I have always heard it called OKLAHOMA CAVIAR though (seems like Oklahoma & Texas have fought over everything since the Red River!).
This would also be good using black beans with various colorful peppers.
2 Cans black eyed peas* - drained but not rinsed
1 Can White hominy* - drained but not rinsed
3-4 Cloves Garlic - chopped finely
2 Medium tomatoes chopped
1 medium green bell pepper (could use red or yellow depending on season and color you want)
3-6 fresh serrano or jalopeno peppers, chopped finely
8 Scallions with green tops, chopped finely
1 medium onion, chopped finely
˝ -1 cup parsley, chopped finely
1 - 8 oz. jar fat free Italian dressing
*Put black-eyed peas and hominy in colander to drain while chopping the other items.
Chop the garlic finely-it is helpful to first peel the cloves and smash with the blade of a large knife. Sprinkle with salt
and let stand for 5 to 15 minutes. The salt will make it easier to chop the garlic. All of these ingredients are really by taste. Decide how you want it to look and taste. Remember that you will be serving this
with tortilla chips which will dilute the heat! At Christmas time, it would be lovely to substitute the green with a red bell pepper. The red pepper against the other green would be nice. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Set out to take chill off before serving; serve with baked LF/FF tortilla chips.
If anyone figures out the WW points for this recipe, please post them. I'm still trying to figure out my Mastercook program. Thanks!

I give this recipe an A+. From Versatile Vegetarian WW cookbook.
One 19-oz can white beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup coursely chopped basil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a blender or food processor, puree the beans, basil, lemon juice, oil, garlec and salt. Let stand at room temp, covered, until the flavors are blended (at least 2-3 hours).
As mentioned in the "favorite lunches" thread.. this is my fave filling for pita pockets..
1 medium eggplant
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup sesame tahini
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper and cayenne to taste
(i also like to add a bit of cumin.. though it isn't in the recipe).
Preheat oven to 350. Spray baking sheet with pam. Halve eggplant the long way, place cut-side down on baking sheet, bake 30 min or until very tender, cool and peel off the skin. Either put the eggplant plus rest of ingredients in a food processor and puree, or just mash it all together with a potato masher for a chunkier texture (my preference).
In medium bowl combine all ingredients. Let stand, covered, at room temperature for 30 minutes

We get a Mexican dinner here called a chalupa. I believe Taco Trio also has something similar. We've estimated the ones at the restaurant are 12 points. Leaving out the meat and using fat-free I have reduced it to 4.4 points* and they are so simple. Heat the re-fried beans in the microwave. Then warm the tortilla in the microwave (about 30 seconds). Spread the refried beans over the tortilla and then top with the other stuff.
*It might vary slightly depending upon the brand of ingredients.

I'm looking for the Vegetarian Quesadilla recipe that was handed out by WW at meetings on a card. I believe when the program was 123 points or whatever it was in 2001...it had grated zucchini, black beans and salsa...may have had corn also but I could be confusing the corn with another recipe. I loved this for a quick dinner and called it my 'new comfort food' and I seem to have all the cards but that one. :dunno:
01-27-2005, 12:27 PM
I will see if I can find it in my old WW stuff :)

1 Cup salsa (roasted bell pepper flavor)
1 cup drained canned black beans, rinsed
1 zucchini, shredded
8 ((6-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (use jalapeno-style for extra flavor kick)
1. In med bowl, combine salsa, beans, and zucchini. spread 1/4 of the mix over each of 4 tortillas. Top each portion with 3 tbsp cheese, cover each with another tortilla.
2. Heat an 8 or 10 inch nonstick skillet over med heat. One at a time, carefully cook each quesadilla, turning once, until cheese is melted, about 1 minute on each side. Cut each quesadilla into quarters; serve immediately.

Thanks this is it!

Can you please tell me how much a serving is? I didn't see it in the recipe.
Thanks much! :D

Yum, I eat this for breakfast or a snack. And the best thing is it's only 1 point!!!
1 Don Marcos Fat free Tortilla (60 cal, 0 fat, 6gr fiber) even 2 tortillas is still 0 points - they taste just like reg tortillas
1 slice 2% Kraft cheese slice
Add 0 point veggies that you like (I like just cheese)
Throw in frying pan to warm tortilla for easy folding, add cheese to one side, fold in half and cook for approximately 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Tastes just like a grilled cheese.
I made this the other night with 2 slices of cheese and grilled chicken on the entire bottom tortilla, then layered another tortilla on top of that, put 2 tsp of low fat sc, salsa, lettuce, and 1/2 cup of spanish rice on top of second tortilla then topped that off with a third tortilla. All that was only 9 points and was totally filling, and huge.

I never heard of Don Marcos Fat Free Tortilla. Where do you get them? I am from ARkansas.
02-26-2005, 07:08 PM
Can you use other low fat tortillas?
03-18-2005, 01:31 PM
