Multigrain Slices with Goat Cheese & Figs

     These slices of heaven are not only so easy to make but they are delicious.  I particularly love the texture: crunchy bread with toasted seeds and grains, creamy goat cheese, combined with soft and sweet figs,  topped with walnuts and honey.  Figs are often taken for granted perhaps because they are on the market only from June through September, unless you can find European varieties which can be found through autumn.  Figs are full of nutrients among which are fiber, vitamin B6 and potassium. They are also known to lower blood pressure. But forget about the nutrients, figs are so delicious! Enjoy! 

Makes 5 slices / 10 halved slices  


5 - slices of multigrain bread (or any bread you like)

Salted butter 

5 - ripe figs, skinned then sliced in circles 

4oz - whipped goat cheese (regular is ok too)

walnuts for garnishing 

honey for garnishing 


Turn on your oven to broil. Butter the bread on both sides and place on a cookie sheet. Broil on high for 1-2 minutes or until the slices are golden brown(if you have a panini machine, you can also use it to brown the slices). Spread the goat cheese on each slice and add the figs on top (about half of a fig on each slice). Sprinkle with walnuts and then top with tiny bit of honey as you don't want to overpower the flavor of the figs. Enjoy!
