Directions

  1. Make Compota: Warm oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent and soft (about 5 minutes). Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer 5 minutes. (Depending on moisture content of raisins, you may need to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to keep mixture from drying out.) Remove from heat and set aside. Can be made up to several days ahead and refrigerated.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Cook Spinach:Warm oil in sauté pan over medium heat. Stir in spinach and garlic, and cook until spinach is wilted and garlic is fragrant (about 3 minutes). Cover pan if moisture makes spinach pop.
  4. Assembly: Divide spinach into 4 or 6 cazuelas (small terra-cotta dishes) or heatproof ramekins. Spoon equal amount of goat cheese over each and top with about 1 tablespoon compota. Bake until cheese is bubbly (about 5 minutes). Serve hot.
