Roasted and Honeyed Figs

Roasted and Honeyed Figs is as easy as you can get (short of eating the fig undressed), and, paired with creamy yogurt and crunchy Grape Nuts, it’s as delicious as you can get.

It’s fig season, and we cannot get enough of what we’ve heard referred to as “nature’s candy.” Figs, when they’re ripe, are heavy and syrupy, sweet and jammy, and dangerously easy to snack on. There’s not a much more perfect fruit than a ripe-to-the-point-of-bursting fresh fig. 
 
Still, we like to play around in the kitchen, and with the trays and trays of figs out for us at stores and markets now, we wondered about making an easy fig dessert. Roasted and Honeyed Figs is as easy as you can get (short of eating the fig undressed), and, paired with creamy yogurt and crunchy Grape Nuts, it’s as delicious as you can get. Texture and temperature (cold yogurt, warm and syrupy figs) play together beautifully in this recipe that is as lovely for company as it is cozying up on the sofa after dinner.

Fig season, can you please stay awhile?

Roasted and Honeyed Figs

8 figs (any variety, just choose the ripest ones you can find)
1 tablespoon honey
Greek yogurt (right now we are loving Nounós and Ellenos)
Grape Nuts cereal (or granola)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Slice the stems off the figs, then the figs into quarters. Place the figs in a small, glass baking dish and toss with the honey. Roast for 15 minutes.

Serve the figs spooned over yogurt with Grape Nuts sprinkled on top, and another drizzle of honey if you wish.
