FALL FIG SPREAD AND ASIAGO GLUTEN FREE VEGETARIAN SANDWICH

This is hardly a recipe, so I will explain the method briefly. Wash and halve a pint of fresh figs. Set the oven to 400 degrees. In a roasting pan, toss the figs in a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, a tablespoon of olive oil, and, depending on the ripeness and sweetness of the figs, add a tablespoon of agave syrup or none at all. When the figs are very soft and slightly caramelized, process all to a spread-like consistency.

Start with a gluten free bread you like. I like this. Spread the slice of bread with your instant fig jam, and add shaved asiago to the mix. I prefer to toast the bread and leave the sandwich open-faced. You may decide to do otherwise.

This is a delicious sandwich, no matter how you slice it.
