Description

This crostini topped with sweet, juicy figs and paired with tangy goat cheese and crunchy pistachios is so flavourful and perfect for snacking on or entertaining.


Ingredients

  • 1 french baguette, sliced into ΒΌ-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (4 oz.) package goat cheese, room temperature
  • 1 (8 oz.) package of fresh figs
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, unshelled and toasted
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper
  • balsamic vinegar or honey, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Place as many pieces of sliced baguette on a rimmed baking sheet as you can fit. Drizzle with olive oil and salt. Bake until crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Using a small spatula, spread about 1 tablespoon goat cheese on each crostini, covering most of the bread.
  3. Remove stem on figs and cut into quarters. Layer figs on top of goat cheese. Sprinkle with toasted pistachios, then season with a little sea salt and black pepper on each crostini. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar or honey (or both!). Serve immediately.
