  • 1 small flatbread (I used a whole grain naan)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 ounces goat cheese , softened
  • 1/4 cup caramelized onions
  • 3-5 fresh figs , sliced
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic reduction (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Brush the flatbread with half the olive oil. Add dollops of the goat cheese evenly over the flatbread. Add the onions and figs.
  • Bake 10 minutes or until the goat cheese melts a bit and the edges of the flatbread brown. During the last 2 minutes, toss the arugula with the remaining olive oil and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl until the greens are lightly dressed.
  • Remove from the oven. Top with the dressed arugula, cracked black pepper and a drizzle of balsamic reduction.


Recipe Tips
  • Be sure to brush on plenty of extra virgin olive oil to help the naan brown. But also for flavor!
  • Using room temperature goat cheese helps if you want to spread it for more even coverage.
  • If you don't have arugula, swap in the same amount of spinach or baby kale.
