Whipped Chèvre Tartine

Just in time for spring! Lemony goat cheese melds so well with fragrant orange zest and mint.
Servings 2


  • 2 slices thick rustic bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened
  • 8 oz chevre
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons pistachios chopped
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • A few sprigs of fresh mint
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the chèvre and milk. Whisk until smooth and spreadable. Set aside. For larger amounts, you can use a stand mixer, hand mixer, immersion blender, or food processor.
  • Butter both sides of the bread and fry in a pan on medium-low heat. Cook for two to four minutes, until the butter sizzles and the bread turns a golden brown. Flip and continue to cook for another two to four minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and let cool vertically so you don’t steam their faces.
  • To serve, spread the whipped chèvre onto the toast. Add the orange zest, mint and pistachios. You can slice it in half or serve it whole. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and a few big flecks of sea salt.


Using thicker slices of butter-fried bread makes this more of a headliner than a side dish.
Whipped goat cheese is a silky and a decadent alternative to cream cheese for breakfast. If you don’t have any milk, you can substitute it with half and half, rice or nut milk.
