Meatless Monday: Roasted Figs and Honey

Searching for a light and meatless snack? Look no further. Here’s this Monday’s delicious meatless recipe.

Roasted Figs and Honey

Ingredients:

  • Fresh figs with stems
  • tablespoons fresh, flavorless cooking oil
  • Fresh roasted hazelnuts (and/or pistachios and walnuts—see bullet point above), roughly chopped (allow 1 teaspoon per fig)
  • Chèvre, Gorgonzola or mascarpone (optional, 1 tablespoon per fig)
  • Varietal honey

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Clean and pat dry figs, retaining stems.
  2. Toss figs with oil place upright in a baking dish or on a baking sheet with a lip. Roast for 12 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool and quarter as shown in photo. You can cook the figs a day in advance, but bring to room temperature before serving.
  4. Using a melon baller, fill the center of each fig with a scoop of cheese; or, serve cheese separately.
  5. Plate by creating a small pool of honey; place the fix on top of it. Drizzle a very small amount of honey on top of the fig. Scatter nuts around the fig.
