This recipe is primal rather than paleo, although I don’t doubt that you could make it paleo if you used a nut cheese…
Hubby wanted to try fresh figs because he has developed a love of the dried ones… and they had a pack of fresh figs at Costco – I can’t tell you what they cost but it was less than $10 for 24 figs….
So we bought a pack. We also bought goat cheese and honey… and I made this recipe which is the most amazing cheese course/desert imaginable.
Sadly most of the kids did not like it but Hubby and I did
Cheese, even goat cheese, is an AIP stage 4 reintroduction. When reintroducing foods on the AIP, I recommend this guide.
Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs
)The picture only shows 12 stuffed figs because I only made half the pack… a full pack of 24 figs would feed 12 people, 12 figs makes 6 portions if you figure 2 figs per person. I still need to workout what to do with the other 12 figs that are in the fridge seeing as the girls won’t eat them!)
1 pack of 24 fresh figs (Costco)
1 pack of soft goat cheese (I used a 300g pack of Celebrity goat cheese purchased from Costco)
This is so simple that it is almost embarrassing to call it a recipe…
Take your figs and cut them in 4 crosswise from the stem to almost down to the base without cutting all the way through – basically you want a fig with the base intact and cross-wise cuts but it still intact and holding together. Then take a big table spoonful of goat cheese and stuff it in the middle of those crosswise cuts. Use the rest of the figs and put them on a serving platter and drizzle the whole thing with some runny honey. Don’t use too much figs are sweet and fresh figs have an ethereal sweetness that dried ones do not…
Chill in the fridge until ready to serve and impress your dinner guests…
This is another recipe that is primal rather than paleo… I liked it, hubby liked it, the kids did not…. I guess it won’t be featuring on our Christmas buffet cheeseboard!
