My favorite dip is Roasted Goat Cheese, with Spicy Tomato Oil.
Really easy, the amounts are kind of subjective, but let's say it's just for the two of us
I'd take a pint of grape tomatoes, cut them in half and salt the cut side.
Put them cut side down on an oiled baking sheet, then put them in a moderate (400 degree) oven for about half an hour, or til they begin to "collapse" and get some color around the edges. Remove to a mixing bowl, then mash with a potato masher, add a bit more oil, maybe 1/4 cup, and some hot, smoked paprika (to taste, I like it spicy!!), and salt and pepper as needed. In a small crock, place a cup of goat cheese in the center, and smear lightly with oil, place in a hot oven for about ten minutes, remove, pour the tomato puree around, and serve with bread crisps. Yummm!!
