  • 6 fresh figs
  • 1/4 cup creamy goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp walnuts
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • pinch of smoked sea salt or regular sea salt


  • Prepare Maple-Glazed Walnuts first. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tablespoons walnuts and 2 teaspoons maple syrup and cook, stirring occasionally until walnuts are toasted and syrup has caramelized, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with a pinch of smoked sea salt.
  • Trim stems from figs and slice in half. Slice a tiny piece of the rounded part of each fig half so they will sit level on a serving plate.
  • Top cut side with 2 teaspoons goat cheese and sprinkle with maple-glazed walnuts and serve.
