Five Good Things About Goat Cheese

2 Mar

My dinner inspired this post…While I made some changes, the recipe was roughly this: Goat Cheese and Asparagus Pasta/ – and it was good.

1.) Relative to (most) cow cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories, and cholesterol.  Basically it’s a health food.

2.) Goat cheese is not low in flavor.  Its flavor profile is a little tangy, a lot creamy, and completely delicious.

3.) Some people who cannot eat other cheeses can eat goat cheese.

4.) Goat cheese is a good source of calcium, which is vital for strong teeth and bones.

5.) It’s very versatile.  I already like it in pasta and dips, on salads and pizzas, stuffed into a hunk of meat and sandwiches, or basic  straight up.  I don’t love the Neely Family from the TV (read: they annoy me and I find them almost creepy) but they featured a goat cheese grilled cheese the other day…that’s probably going to happen in my kitchen.

5b.) A BONUS!  Goat cheese is free of bovine growth hormones, ha ha.
