Fresh Figs Stuffed with Goat’s Cheese and Topped with Organic Wild Lavender Honey Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 oz (113g) soft goat’s cheese (for a vegetarian option, use cheese with a vegetarian rennet)
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup wild lavender honey or a lighter honey such as thyme

Method

1. Preheat the oven to broil. Trim off the stems of the figs and cut an ‘X’ in the top of each fig one third of the way through.

2. Place the figs on a greased tray or some grease-proof paper. If they are a little wobbly, you can shave a bit off the bottoms of the figs so they stand upright.

3. Place the goat’s cheese in a plastic or piping bag and massage with warm hands until softened.

4. Cut a tip off one of the bottom corners of the bag and pipe the cheese into each fig, dividing your 4 oz cheese evenly between the 12 figs.

5. Lightly brush the figs with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and a generous amount of freshly cracked black pepper.

6. Broil the figs for about 4 minutes or until you can see little brown bits on the goat cheese.

7. Oak honey should be gently warmed in a small saucepan at this point. It should be easily pourable and warm but not hot.
