Bruschetta Recipe: Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Leviticus 16:10. This talks about how the Hebrews used two goats for their ritual. They sacrificed one, sprinkling its blood on the back of the other. This one became a “scapegoat” and was  turned out into the wild. The symbolism there is that the scapegoat bore the sins of the people.

Today, the crispy bread remains part of a bruschetta recipe, but the toppings can include just about anything In this wonderful bruschetta recipe, you find flavorful goat cheese, rosemary or time and a drizzle of honey

Goat cheese can be traced back to ancient times. Goats were part of family life.

Goats were a domesticated animal and provided milk and, on occasion, eaten during a special meal. Goat’s hair was woven into cloth and goatskin bottles were made to carry water and wine.

Goat cheese is mainstream now. And it makes a great addition to this bruschetta recipe.

Goat cheese can be semi-firm or rather hard. The older the cheese, the harder. And it has a real tangy flavor. Goat cheese is low in potassium and that’s good for those folks who need to be on a low potassium diet like those with kidney problems.
