Grilled Fig & Arugula Flatbread

Getting every bit of grilling in before the Summer comes to an end. This idea came when a friend asked me if I ever missed cheese, especially eating fruits with savory cheese. I answered by making this bleu “cheese” grilled fig flat bread.  I would describe this as a triple “S” recipe.

Grilled fig & arugula flatbread

4 flour tortillas
1 cup vegan bleu cheese
4 green or black figs, halved
2 cups arugula, washed
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tbsp agave
salt & pepper, to taste (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly brush oil on the inside half of figs and place face side down on a grill pan. Grill or bake for 7-8 minutes or until lightly brown and soft. Set aside to cool and cut each halves into thirds.

In a small bowl, whisk oil, balsamic and agave. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Lightly dress arugula with dressing and quick a quick toss. Set aside.

Warm tortillas on the stove top or in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Spread each tortilla with vegan bleu cheese, fig slices and top with balsamic arugula.

Best served immediately.
