Roasted Figs Blue Cheese & Walnut Spread
Craving Something Healthy
About 4 cups fresh figs
stems removed and sliced in half lengthwise
large sprig fresh rosemary
Greek cream cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Spread the fig halves in a single layer in a baking dish, and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle about half of the rosemary needles around the figs, and lay the remainder over the top of the figs.
Roast the figs for about 30 minutes, or until they are softened and just starting to brown a bit in spots. Stir once or twice while roasting to coat with the honey.
Let the roasted figs cool to room temperature.
Combine the blue cheese, cream cheese, vanilla and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process until smooth.
Add the roasted figs and walnuts and pulse just until the figs are broken down into small pieces.
Serve with crackers and fruit.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
