Figs are truly versatile. You can make both sweet and savory fig recipes, and they always please everyone. Here is one of them: Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs.


  • 10 fresh figs
  • 3.5 oz (100 g) goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon (or more) honey
  • A pinch of black pepper


  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by heating your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare the Figs: Slice off the stems and then cut an X shape on the top of each fig, about halfway down. This will allow you to stuff them easily.
  3. Stuff with Goat Cheese: Gently open up the figs at their cut and stuff them with a small amount of soft goat cheese.
  4. Arrange on Baking Tray: Place the stuffed figs on a baking tray.
  5. Drizzle: Lightly drizzle each fig with olive oil, followed by a touch of balsamic vinegar and then a bit of honey.
  6. Season: Sprinkle some freshly ground black pepper over the top for a little kick.
  7. Bake: Place the tray in the oven and bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the figs are soft and the cheese is slightly melted.
  8. Serve: Remove from the oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
