Courtesy of Michelle Doucette (An amazing coach!!)
(Makes 2 appetizer or dessert servings, recipe adapted from YumSugar, who adapted it from The Food Network.)
4 ripe figs
8 thin slices of goat cheese
1 1/2 T good quality balsamic vinegar
2 T amber or light agave nectar
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a small baking dish with non-stick spray or brush with olive oil.
Cut the stem end off of each fig, then cut figs in half lengthwise and lay in baking dish with cut side up. Cut 8 thin slices of goat cheese and lay on top of each fig half. (If you have a larger roll of goat cheese you could cut 4 slices, then cut each in half.)
Whisk together balsamic vinegar and agave nectar, then drizzle over the cheese-topped figs. Lightly season figs with salt and fresh ground black pepper.
Roast for 15-18 minutes, until the figs are hot and lightly cooked and cheese is melted. You can use a spoon to drizzle more glaze over the figs halfway through the baking time if you’d like.
