Whipped Goat's Cheese & Figs



Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Place walnuts on a baking sheet, bake for 5-7 minutes until lightly roasted, remove and allow to cool. Put the figs cut-side up on a baking sheet. Add a few ripped sage leaves, drizzle with olive oil, season, and bake for 6-7 minutes until slightly softened.  Slice bread thinly and lightly toast. In a food processor blend 3 parts goats cheese to 1 part cream cheese until smooth, fold chives through the cheese. Place a dollop of the whipped cheese to a plate and spread it out in a line with the back of a spoon or spatula. Top with 3 fig halves, crumble over the walnuts, drizzle with honey and serve with lightly toasted sourdough.
