Fantastic Appetizer: Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini

Before fig season comes to an end, I wanted to share this incredibly delicious Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini appetizer recipe. It’s so easy to prepare and tastes out of this world. You can make these anytime of the year. Just substitute dried figs for fresh ones. The combination of flavors, orange, figs, honey and pepper, pair wonderfully with the goat cheese.

I love making eggplant side dish recipes, and this recipe for Sauteed Eggplant and Tomatoes couldn’t be easier. I sauteed my eggplant in a good bit of chicken broth to reduce the amount of olive oil. I used garlic, red pepper flakes, organic canned tomatoes and fresh basil, and it came out wonderful. Enjoy as a perfect year-round side dish.
