Fig Focaccia with Caramelized Onions, Goat Cheese + Rosemary

Fig Focaccia with Caramelized Onions, Goat Cheese + Rosemary

My fig tree is bursting with ripe fruit. Breakfast, lunch and dinner consist of gobbling them up before the birds do: Figs in my yogurt, figs in my smoothie, figs on toast with almond butter and a drizzle of honey. Figs in my salad, figs in my ice cream, figs with quinoa and roasted veggies. I’m figging out over here! I brought some to the office, thinking I could pawn them off on the coworkers but to my surprise most of them have never seen or tasted a fresh fig! Yes, these are the same figs that are in a Fig Newton (I think) but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count as eating a fig. My favorite way to eat them (besides right off the tree) is roasted with goat cheese, all caramelized and savory. This fococcia is not just for fig lovers, the toppings are so versatile. If you’re not feeling figgy, try olives or sun-dried tomatoes, some roasted vegetables or just a bunch of fresh herbs.

    I absolutely love figs and am also surprised when people say they’ve never had one. They’re so missing out, in my opinion. 😉 And this is a wonderful pairing with goats cheese and caramelized onions. Beautiful focaccia!
