How to Make the Ultimate Umami-Bomb Vegetarian Demi-Glace
1 baguette, cut into 24 slices about 1/4 inch thick
1 medium garlic clove
8 ounces Montrachet goat cheese or Italian Robiola cheese
Fresh thyme leaves
Freshly ground pepper
Toast the baguette slices on a baking sheet in a 375° oven for about 8 minutes, or until golden brown. Very lightly rub the toasts with the garlic clove. Spread each toast with a thin layer of cheese. Pour a small amount of truffle oil into a teaspoon and tilt the spoon to sprinkle 3 or 4 drops of truffle oil on each toast. Top with a few thyme leaves and a pinch of black pepper and serve immediately.
