Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese and Honey

What’s not to love about the fall season? The Earth explodes in color and gives up its amazing harvest of wonderful foods. It’s time to get back into the kitchen to whip up some wonderful autumn dishes. Today I’m sharing an easy and tasty appetizer of roasted figs with goat cheese, honey, and pistachios.

Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese, Honey, and Pistachios

 

Last weekend I hosted a Tapas and Sangria party on the back deck by the pond. Everyone loved the roasted figs appetizer. A few people even confessed they had never eaten a fig before, but now they’re hooked!

I made my roasted figs two ways. I sliced them in half lengthwise, and also quartered them from the top down about two-thirds of the way down the fruit. Stuff them with goat cheese and brush lightly with olive oil. Next, add a bit of salt and fresh cracked pepper. If desired, sprinkle the tops with pistachios. Place the figs under the broiler for about five minutes.

Pull them out of the oven and drizzle with a bit of honey. The combination of flavors dance on your tongue!

Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese and Honey

Ingredients

  • 12-16 fresh figs
  • 4 oz soft goat cheese for vegetarian use cheese with a vegetarian rennet
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons crushed pistachios optional
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Trim off stems of figs and cut an "X" in the top of each fig about 2/3 of way down. Or, slice the figs in half lengthwise and make an indentation in the center of each with your finger. Place the figs on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  2. Use a teaspoon to gently stuff the cut figs with a bit of goat cheese. Lightly brush the figs with olive oil, then sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt and black pepper. Sprinkle tops with crushed pistachios. Place under broiler for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and drizzle figs with a bit of honey. Serve warm or cooled. Enjoy!
