I have a fig tree…and I have been making everything possible: jam, fig toast, fig bars, fig cake! Now…Eggplant Fig Pizza!
Half large eggplant
One medium onion
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 cups sliced figs
1 bunch of garlic
2 TBSP balsamic vinaigrette
1/4 cup pine nuts
Fig Eggplant Pizza!!! See separate recipe for whole wheat pizza dough here.
Figs are a natural to meld with eggplant because they both are sweet. Add some caramelized onions and you have a super delicious pizza…add a bit of salty/savory with the vegan feta and then come crunch with pine nuts and freshness with arugula: heaven!! Invite friends over because you are set to impress with Figs Eggplant Pizza!
Let me know how it goes and please send pix! THANK YOU to FB Live’s #JaneUnChained where this recipe first appeared!
Take a bunch of garlic. Cut off tops. Put in tinfoil and put in toaster over for 45 minutes.
Slice the eggplant thinly.
Slice the onion thinly.
Sautee in olive oil.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Slice figs in half.
Coat in balsamic vinaigrette, then sautee in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil.
When gooey, add to eggplant and onions. Set aside
Take pine nut and roast in a saute pan with a bit of olive oil, letting them get brown. Set aside.
When garlic is ready, take out and let cool.
Roll out pizza dough into square and put on a baking sheet.
When garlic is cool, squeeze out garlic and spread evenly on pizza dough.
Then layer with eggplant, onions and figs.
Sprinkle on chunks of vegan feta.
Salt and pepper again if you wish, and definitely some oregano.
Bake for 20 minutes on 450.
Pull out and sprinkle with pine nuts and layer with arugula.
