A few years ago, a leftover of pesto and goat cheese inspired me to prepare a veal hamburger garnished with a pesto sauce and goat cheese. I had forgotten my recipe but the new barbecue season coming refreshed my memory…and I thought that you too would like to indulge. It is a fast recipe, the sauce and garnishes are prepared while the meat is grilling and the buns are heating.

I used a fresh goat cheese but I am almost sure that you can use any type of goat cheese. The sause is generous leftover sauce is also good in a tomato sandwich.

Have a good Barbecue Season!

Cooking with black garlic

Its taste, very different from fresh garlic, is slightly acidic reminiscent of the flavor of balsamic vinegar with aromas of molasses, mushroom, candied fruit and chocolate.
