Roasted figs with honey & Greek yoghurt
Whenever I make this simple dessert, it reminds me that if you choose delicious, good- quality ingredients, you don’t need to do anything fancy with them.
4 large figs 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1-2 tsp manuka honey or good quality honey for drizzling (or try maple syrup for a variation) handful of rosemary sprigs 8 tbsp Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt 2 tbsp pecans, chopped and toasted
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/ gas 4 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Slice the figs into halves and quarters. Place them on the prepared baking tray.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon over the figs and drizzle with the honey. Lastly, lay the rosemary sprigs over the figs.
Place in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes, or until caramelised and soft. Leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Serve the figs dolloped with the yoghurt, sprinkled with the pecans and the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon. AS A BREAKFAST OPTION Try adding some of my Bodyism Protein Excellence to the yoghurt. This ensures a good dose of protein to give you energy for the day.
