About Gouda

Although Holland’s most famous cheese is produced in modern, computerized dairy plants, the cheese is still smoked in ancient brick ovens over smoldering hickory chip embers. The brown, smoky rind is not only edible; many consider it to be the best part of the cheese. Unlike many supermarket cheeses, Roth Käse’s smoked Gouda is made with real Gouda and naturally smoked with hickory (as opposed to flavored with liquid smoke). Read all about Gouda cheese in our in-depth article.

  • 6 thin slices whole grain bread
  • 1/2 cup hummus, divided
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 4 to 6 leaves green leaf lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 6 slices smoked Gouda
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (try one from The Ojai Cook, a NIBBLE Top Pick)

  • 1/2 small English cucumber, sliced into thin ribbons
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced
