Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.
Trim woody ends off asparagus and halve lengthwise. Cut into 1" pieces on an angle.
Par-Bake Flatbreads and Toast Walnuts
Place flatbreads directly on oven rack in hot oven and bake until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes.
While flatbreads par-bake, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add walnuts to hot, dry pan. Stir often until aromatic, 4-5 minutes.
Remove from burner. Remove walnuts to a plate.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Caramelize the Onion
Return pan used to toast walnuts to high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and onion to hot pan. Stir constantly, 3 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium and stir occasionally until onion is golden brown and tender, 6-9 minutes.
Stir in balsamic vinegar, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Cook until liquid is completely evaporated, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Assemble the Flatbreads
Place toasted flatbreads on a clean work surface.
Top flatbreads with fig spread, caramelized onion, mozzarella, asparagus, and goat cheese (breaking up with your hands if needed). Drizzle with ¼ tsp. olive oil.
Bake Flatbreads and Dress Arugula
Place flatbreads directly on oven rack, with prepared baking sheet on rack below to catch any drips. Bake until cheese bubbles, 5-7 minutes.
While flatbreads bake, place arugula in a mixing bowl. Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
