Fig and Goat Cheese Bites with Pistachios and Honey

  • Preparation 15 MIN
  • Servings 12
It’s no surprise that fig trees like things hot and dry. And while our rooftop gets its fair share of sunshine, we’re the first to admit that Canada is not exactly Greece. Regardless, our fig tree repaid us for our undivided attention by producing no fewer than (drum roll) 10 perfect figs this year. To fully honour the miraculous fruits, we turned them into bite-sized appetizers that transported us to the Mediterranean.



  1. Place the pistachios on a plate and roast in the microwave for 2 minutes. Let cool.
  2. On a work surface, halve the figs lengthwise.
  3. Using a mortar and pestle, finely crush the pistachios. Sprinkle with fleur de sel, to taste, and combine well.
  4. Place a dollop of goat cheese onto each fig half. Arrange on a serving platter. Sprinkle with the crushed pistachios and drizzle with honey.


Goat cheese can be replaced by fresh ricotta.
