Eating figs feels like a spiritual experience to
us, because our ancestors also enjoyed the very same delicacy thousands of
years ago. Combining figs with walnuts and vegan honey piled atop freshly
toasted bread takes this versatile fruit to a whole other transcendental plane.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 2 minutes
Total time: 7 minutes
Serves: 4 to 6
4 to 6 thick slices fresh bread 4 to 6 fresh
½ cup vegan cream cheese
½ cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons vegan honey
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus
zest of ½ lemon

Meanwhile, slice figs into thin rounds. Set
Slather each piece of toast generously with
cream cheese. Add sliced figs, and sprinkle each piece with toasted walnuts.

If you can’t find vegan honey, whisk together 1
tablespoon brown rice syrup with 1 tablespoon agave. It works like a charm!
Be sure to purchase fresh figs only one to two
days before making this dish. They go bad quickly.
