paper chef #5!
so for my second time participating in paper chef, the ingredients were chevre, proscuitto, sherry vinegar, and green garlic. well, i couldn't find neither the sherry vinegar nor the green garlic, so i used balsamic vinegar and green onion instead. what i did was fried pieces of proscuitto to make them crispy and used them as a "cracker base", if you will, to put on herbed chevre i got at trader joe's. then, i caramelized a white onion and glazed the onions with balsamic vinegar so in the end they were meltingly sweet and flavorful. gotta love caramelized onions!! i have some leftovers, too, so i can't wait to put those to use :) then i put the onions on top of the cheese, and garnished with some green onions. overall, it was quite tasty.. and i've never been a huge goat cheese fan but i actually quite enjoyed eating it this way. the herbed variety gave it a great punch of flavor. i might've had too large of a cheese portion though, so maybe if i were to do this again i'd put the caramelized onions on first, then top with a few dots of the chevre. i really liked the combination of flavors, even if i couldn't get the actual ingredients called for :( it was pretty fun coming up with something and putting together the parts. it also pushed me to use chevre, which i probably wouldn't have used in a dish otherwise. yay for another installment of paper chef!
