An adaption from a recipe by Hugh Carpenter. It is great for entertaining as it can be made in the morning or up to 2 days in advance.

This had an interesting combination of flavours and the goat cheese did become very flavourful. I liked it very much, my DH found the flavours more unusual (typical Greek palate).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the Goat cheese crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces and place in a single layer in a ceramic container.
  2. Rinse and chop black beans if using and combine with garlic, ginger, mint and cilantro in a small bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the grated orange and lime zests, chili sauce and sugar.
  4. Place oil over high heat in a 10 inch sauté pan.

  8. Immediately pour the infused oil over the goat cheese and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
