Fresh Fig Pesto

This is a slightly sweet fig pesto made with a lovely creamy French goat cheese called Bucherondin de Chevre.  Bucherondin (boosh-rohn-din) comes from Sevre et Belle, a large, century-old dairy cooperative in the Poitou-Charentes region of France.

It is a great cheese to serve on your holiday cheese platter along with this pesto.


 My friend Allison turned me on to Bucherondin de Chevre and she served it by putting a small piece on top of a half of fresh fig.  That’s where I got the idea for this pesto.


Recipe:  Aprox 2 Cups

  • 1/3 Cup Bucherondin de Chevre Cheese (Rind optional)
  • 7 Whole Fresh Figs
  • 1 Cup Raw Walnuts
  • 1/4 Cup Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup


 Cut the stems off the figs and add everything to a food processor or blender and puree.

Health Benefits:
