Stewed figs and goat’s cheese

Stewed figs and goat’s cheese


Stewed figs and goat’s cheese

You know I like to come up with a new breakfast idea on a Sunday morning. Well I’ve not had the inspiration for the last little while but boy oh boy, this sure makes up for it! There’s an earthiness to the mixture of the components which is deeply satisfying, especially on a Sunday morning after quite a tricky weekend for the poor temple. There I was lying in bed trying to go back to sleep, when visions of stewed figs would not let me be. After a valiant try, I gave in and went downstairs leaving Mark sleeping and made this beauty. What’s the moral here? Not sure, but it has something to do with not fighting creativity, whatever yours happens to be.

dried figs

 Serves 2 with left over figs

250g dried figs (cut into thirds)

150ml water

2 tbsp honey

piece cinnamon

juice half lime/lemon

The pecans

1/2 tbsp butter

40g pecans

additionally

approx 100g soft goat’s cheese

a few slices of “Definitely NOT bread

Stew together, in a saucepan with its lid on, all the ingredients associated with the figs for about 15 minutes or until the figs are rehydrated, soft and a bit yummy/squishy looking.

My friends Pete and Pattie over at Plant Grow Eat have released their first batch of organic honey. It is truly delicious and I used it in with the figs.

Not that you need to be told how to toast pecans in butter, but I just neurontin generic name thought this image was so pretty that it needed to be included. However, you do need to perform this task for your topping.

Have you made ‘Definitely NOT bread” yet? I know it has many ingredients which may look a bit daunting, but I promise, once you’ve assimilated them all its a doddle to make and you’ll be glad you did. Probably the best way to buy them in the first place is to do it through an online shop. Amazon is good and I know there are others dedicated to healthy food provisioning. Sadly in St. Lucia we just have to trawl through the health food shops and collect as we go, but the ingredients do exist.

This recipe could work with a wholesome chunky type of pancake or bread as a substitute, such as Coco loco banana pancakes, or Sunny Sunday carrot pancakes. Whichever option you go for, toast the slices of bread, or make up your pancakes and slather on the goats cheese, artfully layer the stewed figs, then follow with the toasted pecans and drizzle a little of the sauce over the top.

    This is a favourite of mine. Goat cheese never disappoints, and figs are divine..fresh or stewed. The two compliment each other perfectly. I’d have this any time of day or night.
