This fig and yogurt bruschetta recipe is a variation of a fig bruschetta by the food photographer husband and wife team White on Rice. Their roasted fig bruschetta takes 45 minutes to make versus as little as 10 minutes for this recipe using grilled bread and homemade or prepared fig preserves. Differences between the recipes include:
- Replacing roasted figs with fig preserves
- Replacing ricotta with Greek yogurt
- Replacing thyme with fresh mint
- Omitting olive oil
You can drizzle balsamic vinegar over the bruschetta for added flavor.
