Figs. They are everywhere. A Delicious little tear dropped fruits that are only available a few weeks out of the year. Just like Nordstrom’s half yearly sale or Victorias Secret semi-annual sale. No, I don’t have a shopping problem, I just like sales.
I love me some figs. I’m not sure where my love for them stems from. It might be my middle eastern ethnicity, who knows. Regardless the reason, I stocked up. Like a lot. Like way too much. I needed to come up with a way to use them other than eating them like they are popcorn whilst on a Netflix binge. I thought about making jam but, to be honest, that just takes to long and I wasn’t feeling it. I peeped around my kitchen and found a few ingredients every food lover should have. Balsamic vinegar, butter, honey and goat cheese. Boom, I’ll make some roasted figs.
This recipe is seriously the easiest thing in the world to make. With prep and cooking time all together it took me about 20 minutes.
You should let them cool off before shoveling them into your face. Just a thought. You do you, though.
This is everything I used:
So I never measure anything. I pretty much eyeball it. These are 1 cup bowls if that helps at all.
So throw all of this in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes until it thickens. While the glaze is cooking, preheat the oven to 400.
Cut your figs in half and top them with goat cheese.
Once the sauce/glaze is done drizzle over the cheese topped figs.
Pop those bad boys in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes. I did mine for about 12 cause I am impatient, they were still a little too firm for my liking.
I just want to point out that I burned the crap out of my mouth because I NEEDED to eat one right when it came out of the oven. So while I am smiling, know that I burned my taste buds off. SMH
