  • 1 pound shallots (about 12), peeled and halved

  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon crushed dried rosemary

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons fig jam

  • 1 ½ tablespoons sherry vinegar or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Place shallot halves on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper. Roast, turning once, until browned and tender, about 20 minutes.

  3. Remove the shallots from the oven. Flatten the shallot halves using the bottom of a mason jar or sturdy glass. Divide fig jam among the smashed shallots. Drizzle with vinegar and sprinkle with goat cheese. Roast until the shallots are hot and the cheese is lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
