If you love creamy goat cheese as much as I do, you’ll love these tasty recipes with crumbled goat cheese! There’s something for everyone here: veggie-packed frittatas, flavorful salads, and more.
I think crumbly cheeses like goat cheese and feta really elevate a dish – don’t you agree? They’re mild enough to not overpower the other ingredients, but they add a wonderful texture and flavor.
Healthy Recipes with Goat Cheese
Goat cheese, also known as chevre, is a cheese made from goat’s milk. It has a mild, slightly tart flavor.
Fresh goat cheese (as opposed to hard-aged) has a soft and creamy texture, making it a perfect addition to tons of dishes.
And now, I wanted to share some of my favorite recipes with crumbled goat cheese – so you can enjoy them, too!
Goat Cheese Frittata with Spinach
This fancy-looking but easy frittata recipe is packed with veggies (like spinach and mushrooms), fresh herbs, and crumbles of creamy goat cheese.
It’s a drool-worthy breakfast or brunch you absolutely need to try! Enjoy it with guests or use it as a meal prep recipe – the leftovers are great, too, and it will keep well in the fridge for a few days.
Baked Buttercup Squash with Crumbled Goat Cheese
This roasted buttercup squash is more of a fall/winter dish, but goes great with so many mains. It’s studded with juicy pomegranate seeds, fresh herbs, and – you guessed it – goat cheese!
The slight tanginess of the goat cheese compliments the sweetness of the squash and pomegranate so well.
Grilled Steak & Strawberry Salad
I LOVE this meal – it’s easy to make but feels extra special. It’s perfect for grilling weather, or you can make everything on the stovetop!
Juicy, savory steak and sweet grilled strawberries are the highlights of this salad. But the goat cheese really ties everything together with the greens, red onions, and quinoa!
It’s all dressed in a delectable, creamy strawberry vinaigrette. Definitely a must-try, especially in the summertime!
Smashed Avocado & Goat Cheese Toast
This bright and lemony smashed avocado toast features creamy goat cheese, peppery arugula, and toasty bread – plus a squeeze of lemon juice – for the ultimate quick snack.
It’s so flavorful, but really easy to make. Packed with healthy fats, it’s quite nutritious, too!
Butternut Squash & Prosciutto Strata with Crumbled Goat Cheese
If you’ve never tried strata, you’re missing out! It’s a delicious bread-and-egg casserole that typically features cheese, veggies and/or meat.
This particular version brings together roasted butternut squash, salty prosciutto, and creamy goat cheese for a tasty flavor combination.
It’s especially perfect for fall or winter, and makes a great meal for a special brunch gathering!
Chicken & Sweet Potato Harvest Bowls
This harvest salad is essentially autumn in a bowl: apple slices, roasted sweet potatoes, and chicken rest on a bed of kale and brown rice, topped with sliced almonds and goat cheese.
It’s all drizzled with a creamy balsamic mustard vinaigrette that’s easy to make at home, with just 4 ingredients!
Even though this bowl screams fall, it’s delicious all year round – I’ve been known to enjoy it in summer, too, just sayin’. You can always leave off the sweet potatoes to make it more of a light, summery meal!
Crustless Asparagus Quiche with Goat Cheese
I don’t know exactly what it is about eggs and goat cheese, but they’re just meant to be, am I right?!
This crustless quiche is another fave that’s packed with spring veggies for an easy, flavorful breakfast dish everyone will love.
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Casserole
Told ya – more eggs and goat cheese! The saltiness of smoked salmon pairs wonderfully with creamy, lightly tart goat cheese in this breakfast casserole.
You can easily mix and match any veggies or greens you prefer (or whatever you have in your vegetable drawer)!
