Peanut coated goat cheese balls
It took me a long time to put this recipe on the blog, it's a super simple one but holidays got in the way and here we are. Mid-august, I'm finally sharing this recipe for peanut coated goat cheese balls with a surprise pea inside for even more fun.
I had made this recipe for a special appetizers cooking challenge on Twitch, I might as well share it here. It's a super fresh appetizer, the peanuts bring saltiness and a good crunch, lovely.
Peanut coat goat cheese balls (makes 10-12) :
- 1 fresh goat cheese
- 10-12 green peas
- 1 handful roasted and salted peanuts
- 10 chives
- Salt and pepper
Cook the peas 15 minutes in boiling water, cool them in ice cold water.
Put the goat cheese in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Chop the chives finely and add it to the bowl. Mix well.
In a food processor or blender, add the peanuts and blend until you reach a coarse powder texture.
Take a tablespoon of the cheese mix in your hand, add a pea in the center, shape into a ball.
Roll the ball into the peanut powder. Repeat until you run out of ingredients.
Refrigerate at least 15 minutes before serving.
