A tartine is the way we French people call an open faced sandwich, where delicious toppings are laid on a large slice of rustic bread. The bread is often toasted first or the whole tartine is popped shortly in the oven, and served warm with a salad.
The association of fresh figs, goat cheese and rosemary is an absolute favorite of mine, especially with quality honey drizzled on top (try to get your hand on a jar of rosemary honey, it would be a perfect match).
The bread type does matter, and our chia seeds bread is the star here with its wonderful rustic flavor. And you can eat your tartine with fork and knife, or just with your hands - it won't collapse.
These tartines of fig, goat cheese and rosemary are super easy to make and ready in just 15 minutes! Now because tartines are all about creativity, you can swap goat cheese for gorgonzola or a vegan cheese, and if figs are off season, try peach or pear instead.
