Meadowfield Goats Cheese Pasta Salad with Toasted Almonds

Ingredients
4 plum tomatoes, cut into quarters
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for the pasta
40g flaked almonds, toasted until lightly golden
Salt and black pepper
250g conchiglie pasta
150g Meadowfield Farm goats cheese, preferably with a skin
80g rocket, chopped twice
A good squeeze of lemon juice (about ½ a lemon)
2 tbsp finely grated parmesan

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Put the tomatoes skin-side down on a lightly oiled baking tray. Season with salt and drizzle with 2 tbsp of the olive oil. Pop in the oven for around 30 minutes, on the middle shelf.

2 Bring a big pot of heavily salted water to the boil. Add a good splash of olive oil, and tip in the pasta, stirring immediately. Boil according to pack instructions.

3 Drain and allow to cool for 5 minutes – do not run the pasta under cold water. Add another glug of olive oil to make sure the pasta doesn’t stick together as it cools.

4 Put the warm pasta into a big mixing bowl and crumble over the Meadowfield goats cheese. Gently roll and turn around with a wooden spoon until all the cheese is melted and every surface of the pasta is coated.

5 Check the seasoning – plenty of salt and pepper needed for this one –then as soon as the tomatoes are ready, fold these , rocket and almonds into the pasta.

6 Once it’s cooled a bit, it may all start looking a bit tight, but a couple of tablespoons of warm water will restore the creaminess. Finish with the lemon juice, a firm hand on the pepper grinder, a splash of your best extra virgin olive oil, more salt if necessary and some parmesan on top.

Meadowfield Goats Cheese Mousse with Forest Berry Sauce

Ingredients
Forest Berry Sauce 
2 cups of forest fruit berries (can use frozen)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon coconut sugar or granulated sugar
Goats Milk Mousse
120g of cold Meadowfield goats cheese
1/2 cup of cold Meadowfield goats milk 
30 gram can of cold full-fat coconut milk (put in the fridge overnight),
¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoon strawberry or blackcurrant jam
5-6 tablespoons of golden or maple syrup for serving
toasted coconut and chopped chocolate for serving

Method

In a bowl, combine the berries, vanilla and coconut sugar. Mix well and let the berries sit at room temp for at least 15 minutes to allow them to release the juice. 

Meanwhile, add the goats cheese and goats milk to a mixing bowl. 

To extract the coconut milk, flip the can of cold coconut milk upside down, open it and drain the coconut water from the can (this can be reserved for drinking or used in a different recipe). 

Add the white, solid coconut cream and vanilla extract to the bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, whip the mixture until soft and creamy- approx 3-4 minutes. Once whipped, gently swirl in the jam. Cover the bowl and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Divide the forest fruit sauce between 5-6 small dessert bowls or glasses. Next, take the mousse out of the freezer and spoon over the fruit evenly. Cover the bowls/glasses and place them in the fridge for at least 2.5 hours or until ready to serve.

Top each portion with coconut, chocolate and drizzle with maple or golden syrup if desired.

Tomato, Thyme and Meadowfield Goats Cheese Tart

Ingredients
1 sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
2 tbsp olive oil
400g cherry tomatoes, halved
4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves picked
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
80g Meadowfield soft goats cheese

Method

1 Heat the oven to 220C/425F/gas mark 7. Lay out the pastry on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Then, using a sharp knife, score a line – not all the way through  along each side of the pastry, about 2cm in from the edges. This will give the tart a nice crusty edge.

2 Put the olive oil, cherry tomatoes, thyme leaves and garlic into a bowl and mix until they are well coated. Season with salt and pepper and mix again.

3 Tumble the tomato mixture evenly over the pastry, keeping it within the scored lines. Crumble Meadowfield goats cheese over the top among the bits of tomato.

4 Add another quick dash of freshly ground black pepper and pop it into the oven for about 20 minutes, or until it’s golden brown and puffy on the outside, the tomatoes are collapsing slightly and the cheese is melty, then serve.

Serves 4-6
