Grilled Figs with Balsamic Glaze and Goat Cheese
Recipe adapted from Danielle Walker's Against All Grain. For more info, visit her website.
- 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
Preheat your grill to medium-low heat, about 300 degrees.
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.
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.
Stir in the honey, whisking until incorporated. Remove from heat and let it thicken for 5 minutes.
Arrange the figs on a platter skin-side down. Drizzle with the glaze and goat cheese.
