Ina Garten shares recipe on Instagram from her upcoming cookbook
The queen of cooking and Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten is loved by so many people for a reason. She makes simple and amazing recipes and she never shies away from being herself: a rich af women who loves to have a party with her friends. We all just want to go along for the ride and maybe get a piece of her chocolate cake recipe.
Recently, she has been teasing us on her Instagram account with delicious looking food that will appear in her next cookbook. Can we pre-order it yet?? The new book (her twelfth cookbook), Modern Comfort Food, comes out on Oct 6.
While we don’t know everything that will be in the book, she shared one of the easy appetizer recipes with her followers. It’s fig and goat cheese toast. Yum! And of course, the picture is absolutely gorgeous. Ina wouldn’t have it any other way.
How do you make these fig and goat cheese toasts? She provided the recipe along with the picture. You need one loaf of country bread, a jar of (good) fig spread, an eight ounce pack of cream cheese, salt and pepper, microgreens, and a “syrupy” balsamic vinegar.

Slice the bread and put it in a toaster. Once it’s toasted, spread on the fig spread. Next, put cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it for 30 to 45 seconds until it’s soft and creamy. Spread the cream cheese on the toast but leave the fig spread visible around the edges. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Then cut the toast slices crosswise so they’re easier to handle and eat. Top with some microgreens and drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and you’re done! She recommends serving them at room temperature so you don’t have to worry about keeping anything hot or cold. Easy!
If you’re looking to get fancy while at home social-distancing, this is the perfect recipe to try out. It will also make the wait until October that much easier.
