This stuffed figs with goat cheese recipe is so simple and fresh-tasting, you’re going to wish it were fig season all year long! The Greek yogurt is so creamy, and when it’s sweetened with a touch of honey and paired with juicy figs, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into the Mediterranean. This stuffed fig recipe is deceptively straightforward to prepare. If you’re feeling fancy, the goat cheese can be piped into the figs with a piping bag to make them even prettier, but honestly, once you’ve sprinkled on our candied pistachios, these stuffed figs will be ready for their close-up. This stuffed fig recipe makes enough for sharing, but you might be tempted to keep them all to yourself. With so many wholesome ingredients, we think they make a perfectly nourishing breakfast to enjoy with a slice of whole-grain toast. This recipe also makes a lovely companion to our halloumi with honey and cashews and our jeweled rice with pistachios.
8 large figs
¼ cup fresh goat cheese
¼ cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon honey, plus more for serving
½ cup candied pistachios, finely chopped
1 tablespoon bee pollen
Fresh mint leaves
Trim the stems from the figs. With the blossom end down, cut an X in the stem end of each fig, cutting ¾ of the way down but not cutting through the figs.
In a small bowl stir together goat cheese, yogurt, and honey until smooth. Spread the figs open enough to spoon a little of the goat cheese mixture inside. Place figs on a serving plate.
Sprinkle figs with pistachios, drizzle with honey, and garnish with bee pollen and mint.
