roasted fig sandwiches

as a vegetarian, i rarely get excited about sandwiches, but this one is special. there are so many flavors that complement each other, from the bitter arugula and the tangy goat cheese, to the sweet honey and caramelized figs. i made these for dinner when we went to see the swifts (i just topped them each with a second piece of bread to make actual sandwiches, for portability purposes), but for future occasions, i think they'd be better served open-faced.

roasted fig sandwiches (serves 4) adapted from here

slices of crusty whole wheat bread
small container of fresh figs, sliced
handful of arugula
1 small round of goat brie
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp raw honey
salt and pepper 

preheat oven to 400 degrees f. toss fig slices in olive oil and sprinkle with thyme. roast the figs for about 10 minutes, or until they start to caramelize. meanwhile, toast your bread and spread with some goat brie and add arugula. then, top everything with a few slices of roasted figs, drizzle with honey and add salt and pepper to taste.
