Pink Pate and Creamy Pear Salad

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing with you a new project I’ve been working on for the past month. It’s called Inspirations with Leanne, where I’ll be sharing a new goat dairy recipe on the Happy Days Dairies website every week. The recipes will be made with as little allergen ingredients as possible, are guaranteed to be easy, gluten-free and family friendly.

With each new recipe, I’ll be posting a link to my Inspirations page over at Happy Days and look forward to getting your feedback! Happy Days Dairies is a fabulous, local company ran by some of the warmest, most passionate people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Working with them on this project, enjoying their products, and sharing their enthusiasm here on the blog is a dream come true!

First up in a long line of tasty goat dairy recipes, is a vegetarian pate made with goat mozzarella, fresh beets, nuts (or seeds), fresh dill, parsley and lemon. It’s light, packed with lemon, and would be absolutely fabulous to serve as an appetizer at your next get together.

Head on over to Happy Days Dairies Inspirations for the recipe.

And; because two recipes is always better than one, what’s Summer without a fruit salad recipe to rely on? In this week’s Inspiration, I shared a recipe for creamy pear fruit salad with raw almonds, goat feta, raisins and a touch of honey. Adding goat cheese to the salad jacked up the protein and added a super creamy consistency – fruit salad at it’s finest!

For those of you who just cannot handle your dairy, I’ve listed dairy-free recipe variations for the pate here, and the pear salad here.

Have a lovely Thursday ;)

  1. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
    new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints
    for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  2. Yum, two of my favourite things, goats cheese and beetroot :) I had to make this today and it was delicious, i love beetroot and this this recipe might have just replaced my usual raw beetroot salad. I had it with some salmon and rocket, perfect combo (and i have some left for tomorrow – yay!),l thanks for another great recipe, will also try out the pear salad one of these days too, it looks delicious too.

    • Glad you liked it, Joanna! Your raw beetroot salad sounds pretty tasty :)

  3. OMG, I had to jump over immediately and check out the recipe for that pate! It’s so beautiful and I love the use of beets with goat cheese – so cool… I’m featuring this post in today’s Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and I can’t wait to see what you create next…

    • Thanks a bunch, happy that you like the recipe and thanks for sharing it!
