Fig and blue cheese avocado toast

Lately I have been  more than a little obsessed with avocado toast! My whole family loves it and I love to experiment with different toppings and flavor combinations.
Last week I found figs in the market, which is unusual for this time of the year in the Northern hemisphere but since I love figs so much, I could not resist buying some.

The next morning ,I was staring at my fridge trying to come up with a breakfast idea that is quick , tasty , colorful and requires minimum time and effort!
You see,we are currently in the middle of the final exams for the 2nd semester(the school year in the UAE is divided into 3 semesters) . Students have to undergo a national exam in 4 subjects, Math, Science, Arabic and English. With a 7 year old and a 12 year old having to set through the national exams to say that I am overwhelmed and my to do list is overflowing with things that need to get done is such an understatement.Yet I try to set at least 10 to 15 minutes every morning to eat a healthy breakfast.  Things that do not require the whole 15 minutes get extra points 😛

So when I saw these things in my fridge + kitchen (the thyme pot was not in the fridge obviously lol)

I decided to combine two of my favorite things. Avocado toast and figs and voila, today’s recipe and post.

The whole family loved the toast. It was a heavenly combination of the creamy avocados, crunchy pecans, and the sweet and refreshing figs. The blue cheese provided a beautiful sharp contrast to all the other mild flavors.If you can get your hands on some figs, you really need to try this!
