Looking for a dish to entertain your guests, wow them and has a low Glycemic Index? This cheesy delicious dish will check all those boxes for you.
I love dates. They're sweet but have a low Glycemic index so it won't spike your insulin. And they're full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that help protect against some diseases. It's a great sweetener that can be pretty much substituted one for one with white sugar and maple syrup and the perfect way to cure the sweet tooth for those watching their insulin.
What I love about this dish is that it's so easy to whip up and it platters beautifully that your guests will be in awe of you when you place it in front of them. You get that sweet and savory PLUS cheesy flavor all in one.
Just Date offers a number of delicious organic date products from sugar, syrup and baking mixes.
4-6 Servings, Approx. 20 minutes
What You'll Need
1 Brie Wheel
4-5 Figs, quartered
2 Tbsp Walnuts, chopped
1 Tbsp Rosemary
3 Tbsp Just Date Syrup
Crackers or Crostini, for serving
All You Need To Do
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Place the brie in a cast iron. If you do not have a cast iron, you can place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Brush the top of the brie with date syrup. (I like that slight caramelization baked into the cheese. This step is optional)
Bake for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix your figs, remaining date syrup, walnuts and rosemary together until your figs are coated with syrup.
Carefully spoon the figs onto the top of the brie and bake for another 5 minutes.
Serve immediately with crackers or crostini and fruit.
