1 cup dried figs, stems removed and quartered (Blue Ribbon®, Orchard Choice®, and Sun-Maid® are excellent brands)3/4 cup orange juice1/2 cup water2 teaspoons grated orange zestPinch salt5 ounces fresh goat cheese, room temperature18 baguette slices, sliced on a sharp diagonal1 green onion, thinly sliced
Place the dried figs, orange juice, water, orange zest and salt in a saucepan. Over low heat, simmer until the dried figs are soft and 2 tablespoons of the liquid remains, 20 to 30 minutes. If the mixture gets dry, add water to keep it moist. Cool the mixture and puree in a blender or food processor to make a paste. Reserve.
Toast the baguette slices. Spread the dried fig paste on top of the crostini distributing evenly. Place the goat cheese in a bowl and mash. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon goat cheese over the dried fig paste. Sprinkle with the green onions and serve.
