Fig and Artichoke Bites with Soy Cheddar


  1. We used pre-made vegan pastry shells. However they can also be made from vegan pie dough and baked ahead of time.
  2. Slice the artichoke hearts in thirds or quarters.
  3. Slice the vegan cheese in small pieces.
  4. Place a small portion (1/2 teaspoon) of fig jam in the bottom of each shell.
  5. Put a piece of the artichokes on each shell.
  6. Top with a small piece of soy cheese on each shell and garish with a small leaf.
  7. Serve on a tray or individual plates.

    Hi KarmaLily, 🙂 Thank you for your comment. Yes, I go regularly to all the markets searching for fresh figs. The ones on our trees are not ripe yet either. So, I broke down and used fig jam. The jam worked very well with these little pastry shells in fact, better than a fig as that would be too much bulk with the artichoke. These are just small little bites, but very nice. It’s a lovely combination that I hope you get a chance to enjoy.
