I love being in the heart of fig season in California.
Simultaneously, it happens to be the same time as my birthday; which is a very lovely coincidence.
This year, one of my favorite dishes during this beautiful season is the Fig and Tempeh Pizza from Sun Cafe Organic in Studio City.
Delicious gluten-free rice crust from Rising Hearts Bakery with signature mac and cheese sauce, smokey homemade tempeh, luscious figs, fresh arugula and thick balsamic glaze.
I was also lucky enough to snag some GIANT fresh figs off my friends fig tree.
