  1. Put the figs in a small bowl with just enough hot water to cover. Set aside to steep for 15-20 minutes.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 3 minutes. Add the figs, water and balsamic vinegar. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until the figs have become very soft and the liquid has reduced to a thick syrup. Using a wooden spoon break up the figs. The whole thing should look jammy.
  3. Preheat the broiler or toaster oven.
  4. Lay out the flat bread and spread ¼ cup of the fig sauce on each of the flat breads. Evenly top with the goat cheese and sliced red onion. Toast for 5 minutes, or until the flat breads are well browned.
  5. Once the flat breads are out of the oven, top with arugula, chopped pistachios, fresh figs, and flaky salt. Serve immediately or at room temperature.

Chef Tips

If the Indian flat bread naan is not available in the local market, use medium size pita breads instead.
