Portion a small amount of goat cheese on a spoon. Using a second spoon of the same size, begin shaping the mixture by transferring the cheese back & forth between the spoons several times to form an oval shape. The goat cheese will take on the shape of the spoon bowl. Gently transfer the quenelle to the top of side dishes & salads.
