Fig and Goat Cheese Flatbread
With fig season being short and oh so sweet, this recipe is a seasonal favorite and current staple for Market Umbrella staff. Being able to source half the ingredients from market, we might as well call this a summer market flatbread. With few ingredients, little preparation time, and figs, this recipe is a must try!
- 1 flatbread (store bought or homemade)
- 2 onions
- 2 oz of goat cheese
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- ¼ pint of figs
Chop onions, caramelize by sauteing on medium heat with 2 teaspoons of olive oil for 30-60 minutes, stirring often.
Prepare flatbread by brushing with remaining olive oil, layer caramelized onions, goat cheese, chopped figs. Bake at 425° F for 10 minutes.
Ta da! You have a delicious summer market flatbread. And if you're really trying to maximize your market ingredients, drizzle with honey, and/or garnish with bee pollen. DELISH!
