"I live on this recipe all summer," says Sonya Bavvai. She prefers fresh Black Mission figs. Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°. Lay pita breads on two 12- by 15-inch baking sheets and bake until lightly golden and slightly crisp at the edges, 6 to 8 minutes.
While breads are still warm, brush with olive oil and rub generously with the cut sides of the garlic clove.
Rinse and stem figs. Cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick wedges. Distribute wedges over breads. Crumble goat cheese over the top and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with thyme leaves and salt and pepper to taste.
This surprising simple and delicious. It's the first time I've used fresh figs in cooking and they were fabulous. I followed the recipe exactly.
