GOOEY FIGS STUFFED WITH VEGAN CREAM CHEESE AND ALMONDS WRAPPED IN MOODLEY MANOR BACON.

I love when an experiment goes right. These turned out better than I had hoped with just a few adjustments from my original plan. Prepared, cooked and served up in under 20 mins too, what’s not to love?

What you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • Moodley manor bacon
  • Violife dill and cucumber cream cheese
  • Figs
  • Agave
  • Red onion
  • Dill
  • Cucumber
  • Almonds
  • For the dressing:
  • Salt/pep
  • Lime juice
  • Garlic
  • Raspberries
  • Cucumber
  • Mint

How to:

  1. Wash the figs and score a cross on the top. Cut 1/3 of the way down.
  2. Spoon in half of your cream cheese, pop in an almond (these were soaked overnight and skinned) and top with more cream cheese.
  3. Wrap a slice of bacon around each fig and secure with a cocktail stick. Mine went walk abouts so I got resourceful and used spaghetti. Ha ha.
  4. Drizzle with agave and pop in the oven at 200c for 10 min.
  5. Remove and finish with a sprinkle of red onion and dill.
  6. I sat eat one on a slice of cucumber and served up with rocket leaves and dressing

For the dressing:

  • Blend 1/3 of a cucumber (skin removed)
  • Handful of raspberries
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 1/2 clove of garlic minced
  • Salt/pep
  • Lime juice

A super quick starter that looks far more complicated and fancy than it looks.
