Ingredients for the Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese

  • 6 figs
  • 70g goat cheese
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 2 tsp pine nuts
  • agave syrup or honey

The main season for figs lasts from around August to October, so get them while you can! I’ve only recently really started to get aqainted with figs, but they’re great to pair with ricotta, prosciutto, blue cheese and nuts, and, they’re also great to use while baking.

How to Bake Figs with Goat Cheese

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 390°F or 200°C.
  2. Cut off the top part of the fig, where the stem used to be attached. Then cut the figs into quarters, but only cut them about 3/4 through so that they won’t fall apart.
  3. Crumble your goat cheese into smaller pieces and season it with the dried thyme and sage.
  4. Stuff the figs with the goat cheese, using your hands, or a spoon.
  5. Sprinkle the pine nuts on top of the goat cheese.
  6. Roast the figs in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your oven. The sweet spot for mine was around 8 minutes.
  7. Take the figs out of the oven and finish the dish off by drizzling some agave syrup or honey over it.
  8. Serve the figs as an appetizer, or as snacks. Enjoy!
