While I love my home state of Tasmania, it can be frustrating when it comes to some seasonal produce
.
I watch those of you who live in warmer parts of the country with your fresh basil gardens and lush, purple, glistening figs and I’m so jealous
.
I’ve made peace with the fact that I will never feature basil in my herb gardens and I’ve yet to find a source of figgy goodness nearby
.
In fact, my husband was working on a house flip once and there was a fig tree in the back yard that I was watching ripen with giddy joy
.
Imagine my horror when the property sold before the figs were ripe!
.
So, finding a lovely box of figs at my local grocer was cause for much celebration
.
I don’t think you can go past the combination of figs and goat’s cheese and I’ve simply roasted them and then finished them off with a lush drizzle of either honey or balsamic, depending on your preference
.
Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 10 fresh figs

  • 100 grams of goat’s cheese chevre

  • 1 tablespoon of honey or balsamic glaze

  • 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 200° C
  • Line a baking tray with silicone paper and sit the figs on it.
  • Make a cross cut approx halfway down through the figs (I went too far and didn’t account for the opening of the fig as it cooked)
  • Place a teaspoon of the goat’s cheese in the centre of each fig.
  • Roast for 5-10 minutes until softened and gooey.
  • Drizzle with your choice of sweet goodness and finish off with a scatter of thyme leaves.
  • Perfect as a fancy appetiser…or to eat in front of Netflix, I won’t judge you.
