There are a few memorable meals I had living in France and one of them my friend Solange made for me with figs broiled with goat cheese, Provence herbs drizzled with a touch of olive oil. Today at Silent Stay Retreat I picked fresh figs from the tree. I actually have been going to the fig tree for breakfast eating four or five figs and then working in the garden. No dishes to do. But tonight I had my hand at broiled figs with goat cheese. There is something very ancient about this recipe it is like the mating of the Nature Goddess and the God Pan.
I broiled the figs first for about five minutes or until hot. I then take them out of the oven and spread soft goat cheese over the figs then drizzle olive oil and sprinkle Herbs de Provence over the cheese and broil a few minutes again Voila!
