(For Thursday Treats, I shine the spotlight on recipes that are a bit higher in carbs or more indulgent than my usual low-carb offerings; the Thursday Treats are not always sweet, but they're always something delicious that you might enjoy once in a while for a healthy treat!)
I love it when people give me things from their gardens, and I came up with these Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese and Balsamic-Agave Glaze when the garden windfalls included a container of fresh figs my brother Rand picked from his tree. Figs don't grow in Utah so I haven't eaten them that often, but I think these are Mission Figs, named for the Fathers who settled California. This was my first time cooking figs, so I used Food Blog Search to find interesting things that other food bloggers had done with them.
I wanted a dish without added sugar, and I'm a fan of savory-sweet combinations, so I adapted a couple of roasted figs ideas into something that was perfect for me. I loved everything about how these roasted figs turned out, and I think this would make a lovely appetizer or not-too-sweet dessert for a dinner party if you're lucky enough to have fresh figs where you live.
