Grilled figs with goats’ cheese and honey
- 8 ripe figs
- 50g goats' cheese fresh (I used Puhoi Chevre Salade) or mild feta
- 4 tablespoons runny honey
- olive oil
1 Preheat the oven grill to hot.
2 Wash and dry the figs. Remove the stems and place the figs upright on an oven tray.
3 With a sharp knife, cut a cross into the top of each fig and spread to open up the fig a bit, so it looks like a flower. Spoon a couple of teaspoons of goats' cheese into the opening on each fig.
4 Drizzle with a little olive oil and put under the grill until the cheese is melted and starting to brown a little. This should take less than 10 minutes. While the figs are still warm, drizzle them with the honey.
5 These figs could be added to a pile of spinach or rocket leaves for a delicious starter; or have them as an alternative to dessert with a cheese plate.
