Simple Marinara and Goat Cheese Appetizer

The Bread:

Obviously, when it comes to recipes with bread as the star of the show, you need to start by choosing an exceptional loaf. For this recipe I use a beautiful Ciabatta Baguette from Boulart. Boulart makes fresh, delicious artisan breads with no preservatives, no additives and no added sugar, embracing the notion of ‘less is more’. Boulart is certified organic, vegan and NO GMO… Be still my heart! I always try to support companies that are a good fit with The Organic Kitchen ideals and Boulart goes above and beyond! If you would like to support Boulart as well you can take a look at the beautiful variety of breads they offer and find out where to buy near you. By the way, the video showing how they make their beautiful bread is pretty fascinating!

Spread the Love:

All that flavorful goodness is heaven when spread on warm bread, fresh from of the oven. Or, if you prefer, you can toast your baguette under the broiler so it has a bit of a crunch!
