Ingredients

for the vegetable platter:

  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 1 bunch carrots tops trimmed
  • 1/2 head cauliflower* broken into florets
  • 2-4 tbsp olive oil

for the whipped goat cheese:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil** divided
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Unless you own a very large cast iron skillet, you'll have to char each vegetable separately. So, place the broccolini in your cast iron and drizzle it with 1-2 tbsp olive oil.
  • Use your Bernzomatic TS8000 torch to char the broccolini for 30-60 seconds, or until it's charred to your liking. Remove it from the skillet, place it onto a plate or platter, then repeat this same process for the carrots and the cauliflower.
  • Make the whipped goat cheese: Cook the garlic in a skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil until the garlic is fragrant; pour it into your food processor. Then, add the cream cheese, goat cheese and 1 tbsp olive oil and pulse until the mixture is smooth. If you're having trouble getting it to blend, add one additional tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Serve the veggies with the whipped goat cheese and enjoy!
