    Vegetable Terrine with Goat Cheese – Los Angeles Times Newspaper

    Serves 8

    Roasted Tomato Coulis
    6 Roma tomatoesr /> ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
    ½ tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Heat the over to 450 degrees. Cut the tomatoes lengthwise and place in a large mixing bowl. Toss the tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the thyme leaves and salt and pepper to taste. Lay the tomatoes flat on a sheet pan (skin side up) and roast them until skins begin to char a little, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the over and cool.

    Carefully scrape the contents of the sheet pan, tomatoes, juice and all, into a blender or food processor. Puree the mixture, drizzle in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.


    Carrots, zucchini, asparagus, red onion, and other vegetables sliced thin lengthwise. Arrange the vegetables in a flat pan, brush with olive oil and roast under the broiler until golden and tender (about 4 to 5 minutes, 4 inches from the heat). Use a wide spatula to transfer the vegetables to paper towels to drain.

    Cut red peppers, green peppers, and yellow peppers into flat sections and char under the broiler until the skins are blackened. Place the charred peppers in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let them steam until they are cool enough to handle. Peel the peppers.

    Line a loaf pan with heavy aluminum foil leaving a three inch overhang. Assemble the terrine by arranging a single layer of each vegetable. Lightly sprinkle the crumbled goat cheese over the pepper layer. Repeat the layers until the layers reach the top of the loaf pan. Tightly cover the terrine by folding the excess foil over the terrine. Place a 3 to 4 pound weight on the covered terrine and refrigerate overnight.

    Prior to serving heat the terrine through in a low oven until the cheese melts. Invert the terrine onto a serving platter. Slice the terrine for individual servings. Serve warm or chill to serve cold. Spoon the tomato coulis around each slice.
