Happy last Monday of 2014!
With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, I’m sharing with you today a delicious appetizer that would be perfect for a New Year’s celebration. My Fig, Goat Cheese and Walnut Roll Ups are relatively easy to make, but the richness of the goat cheese paired with the sweetness of dried figs add a special something making them a perfect appetizer for a special occasion.
Do you have anything special planned for New Year’s Eve? We are spending the day at the Celtics game, then dinner with friends in the Seaport and closing out the night watching the fireworks! I’d love to hear about your plans too!
- 1/2 cup dried figs
- 1/2 of a pound goat cheese, at room temperature
- 1/3 cup scallions
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 pieces of lavash bread
Finely chop the dried figs and scallions.
In a bowl, combine the figs, scallions, walnuts and goat cheese. Mash together using a fork or spoon until well combined.
Place a damp paper towel on a cutting board or other flat surface. This is needed to keep the lavash soft, as it can dry up quickly.
Place one piece of lavash bread on the paper towel.
Spoon half of the goat cheese mixture onto the lavash.
Using a spatula, spread evenly across the bread.
Once spread, roll up the lavash tightly. Trim each end of the roll.
Repeat above steps starting with placing lavash on paper towel with second piece of lavash and other half of goat cheese mixture.
Wrap both rolls in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (can be for as long as 8 hours).
When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator and cut into 1 inch wide pieces using sharp knife.
