Vegetable Crumble with Goat Cheese Biscuits
Vegetable Crumble is starting to become a staple for me. I never thought a savory crumble would be so good. Making them in the individual mini Le Creuset dishes are the perfect size. I saw them at the store and couldn't resist getting them. They fit pretty much in the palm of my hand and are just so adorable. Whenever I make a large dish of the crumble, I always end up picking off all of the crumble bits, so the mini dishes let other people have some too!
Goat Cheese Hazelnut Biscuits. Sounds like a strange combination. When I first got the hazelnuts, from Oh! Nuts, I was looking up a lot of recipes and only came up with desserts. I wanted to make a savory dish with them as well, just since I had never really experienced hazelnuts before so I wanted to use them in many different ways. This recipe seemed like the best way I found to use them in a savory dish. Plus it had goat cheese, and any excuse for me to buy some of that delicious, melt in your mouth cheese, I will take. They are the perfect accompaniment to a plate of veggies.
