Roasted Carrot and Goat Cheese Flat Bread

I’m pretty sure I’ve roasted something orange three times this week. From sweet potatoes and butternut squash to this tricolor carrot flatbread, it’s certainly smells like fall in my cucina! That said, can we just talk about what an amazing pair carrots and goat cheese make? The carrots are accented with lemony thyme and roasted to perfection and the garlic infused goat cheese makes me want to eat this bad boy for every meal.

If you’re cooking for two I’d slice them up like pizza but if you’re making this as an appetizer I suggest cutting into strips then into squares so that they are the perfect grab and go app. Enjoy! roasted-carrot-and-goat-cheese-flat-bread-keys-to-the-cucina-4 roasted-carrot-and-goat-cheese-flat-bread-keys-to-the-cucina-1

  • What a wonderful combination! I usually serve carrots raw (since that’s how my kids like them), but pairing them up with goat cheese and thyme takes them to the next level. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
