If the mixture gets dry, add water to keep it moist. Cool the mixture and puree in a blender or food processor to make a paste. Reserve.
Toast the baguette slices. Spread the dried fig paste on top of the crostini distributing evenly. Place the goat cheese in a bowl and mash. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon goat cheese over the dried fig paste. Sprinkle with the green onions and serve.
