Description

A little sweet, salty, creamy goat cheese crostini with figs, pistachios, and basil…Ready in 15 minutes!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 10 slices baguette
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 oz goat cheese at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios, crushed
  • 1/4 cup walnut hearts, crushed
  • 2 tbsp molasses, more for later
  • 20 basil leaves, torn, more for garnish
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • 5 ripe mission figs, halved

Instructions

  1. Preheat the broiler on high and adjust the rack to 6 inches below the element.
  2. Brush the baguette slices with olive oil on both sides. Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet. Broil briefly until the top is golden brown and toasted (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from the oven, but keep the broiler on for later.
  3. In a bowl, combine the goat cheese, crushed pistachios and walnuts, molasses, basil leaves, salt and pepper. Mix well with a spoon until the goat cheese mixture is well combined.
  4. Spread a generous amount of the goat cheese mixture on top of each toasted baguette slice, then top each with a slice of fig.
  5. When cool enough to handle, transfer the goat cheese crostini to a serving platter. Drizzle with molasses and garnish with more fresh basil, if you like. Enjoy warm or at room temperature!
  6. Return the crostini to the oven. Broil for another 3-4 minutes until the goat cheese has melted and browned around the edges. The figs will soften some more and gain a little color. Remove from the oven and turn the broiler off.

Notes
