Servings 4


  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, softened
  • 2 medium vine-ripened tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra-vigin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut the slices of bread using a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Arrange the bread hearts and toast them in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes, or until light brown and crispy. Spread each toast heart with a thin layer of goat cheese.

  2. Next, in a small mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, basil leaves, and salt and pepper. Distribute tomato mixture evenly over each toast heart, spreading it to emphasize the heart shape. Serve immediately.
