Roasted figs with honey and orange
This recipe is for two people so just double it up etc for more portions, I allow 2 figs per person, but quite honestly I could scoff the two portions quite easily myself as I love this so much. With only 3 ingredients, this recipe is simplicity itself. Just make sure that the figs are ripe and juicy and you’re good to go!
Ingredients for roasted figs
How to make these roasted figs
Simply slice into the figs as if you were quartering them but don’t go all the way down. You want the figs to open out like a flower but not fall apart completely.
Put some of the orange flesh inside the open fig and the honey too and drizzle over the juice
Now simply bake in the oven
How to serve these roasted figs
I like to serve my baked figs with range and honey very simply. Just add a dollop of Greek yogurt to the plate. Actually you can also serve these baked figs on top of a slice of toasted bread for a more substantial dish. This would be great for a weekend brunch.
Is this healthy?
Yes it certainly is. These roasted figs with orange and honey are the perfect dessert for those on the Mediterranean Diet. There is sweetness from honey but that is way better than using commercial sugars.
