Appetizers/Grilled Figs with Balsamic Glaze and Goat Cheese

Grilled Figs with Balsamic Glaze and Goat Cheese

Recipe adapted from Danielle Walker's Against All Grain. For more info, visit her website.

Ingredients

  • 8 fresh black mission figs, halved
  • ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar (Make sure to find good quality balsamic vinegar with no added sugar)
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-low heat, about 300 degrees.

  2. Brush the inside half of the fig with the olive oil, then place them face down on the grill. Grill for 6-7 minutes, until they are slightly browned and soft to the touch.

  3. Meanwhile, bring your vinegar to a boil in a saucepan set over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes, until a syrup has formed.

  4. Stir in the honey, whisking until incorporated. Remove from heat and let it thicken for 5 minutes.

  5. Arrange the figs on a platter skin-side down. Drizzle with the glaze and goat cheese.

  6. Serve hot.
