These roasted figs are delicious on their own with a little goat cheese or ricotta with some whole grain bread. Or try them in a salad or simply on top of yogurt with some granola. The natural sweetness and fibre are a delicious combination.

  • 8 fresh ripe black figs
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) liquid local honey
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sliced hazelnuts or almonds
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) crumbled goat cheese or ricotta (optional)
  1. Cut figs in half almost all the way, leaving them still attached on one side. Place them open slightly in small casserole dish.
  2. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with hazelnuts. Bake in 375° F (190° C) oven for about 15 minutes or until nuts are light golden and juices start to release from figs. Remove from oven and sprinkle with goat cheese if using.

Apricot variation: Use 8 large fresh apricots for the figs.

Tip: Enjoy warm or cold. Wrap leftovers with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
