GF Balsamic Glazed Fresh Fig Bruschetta Antipasto

BALSAMIC GLAZED FRESH FIG BRUSCHETTA This twist on the basic Italian tomato Bruschetta makes a great use of the fig harvest that comes in all at once. Don’t get me wrong, fresh figs are delicious just the way they are, but there are always a few that get picked with slight imperfections and they are the ones that don’t get eaten right away. The recipe for this Bruschetta is simple, and transforms the figs into a zesty, tangy treat especially accompanied with my homemade Easy 4 Ingredient Vegan Cheeze .

Fresh fig appetizer paired with dairy-free cheese spread on toasted rustic Italian Bread for a summer treat.


  • 6 gently washed and dried ripe fresh figs
  • Slices of toasted GF/DF bread
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. gf balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c. df/gf cheese spread


  1. Chop the figs into bite-sized pieces
  2. Place the figs into a bowl and season with the salt and pepper.
  3. Drizzle on the balsamic vinegar and gently stir to incorporate all ingredients.
  4. Refrigerate while you prepare the toasted gf bread slices.
  5. Grill, toast, or oven bake the gf bread slices, brushing them first with the olive oil.
  6. For best results, only top the toast when ready to serve to avoid soggy toasts.
  7. First spread on the cheese of your choice. Then top with the marinated figs. Use variations such as a layer of micro-greens, or top with chopped pistachios.
  8. Serve immediately.
