Weekend recipe | Stuffed figs

Whoop dee doo, it’s fig season! Truth be told, I’m kinda fascinated by this fruit.

When I was a child, I was repulsed by it. I remember road trips where my parents would stop on the side of the road to buy figs from farmers, and I would never, for the life of me, have a bite of this strange fruit. Wouldn’t have it. No way.

But now I love figs. I think it’s one of those fruits that gets appreciated as your palette gets wiser – almost like wine…

Anyway, I found this funky recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. Because one thing I love about figs is their capacity to combine with other ingredients and give a subtil and unique taste. Last year, I shared some fig tartines recipes with you. This time, the recipe calls for goat cheese, prosciutto ham [optional if you are a vegetarian] arugula salad and honey. Oh my. I tried it at home this week, and these mini bites were gone before I could count to ten. But then again, I couldn’t count that fast, because I was busy eating half of them! ;-)

  1. These look delicious and super healthy! Love fig season!
    Thank you for sharing and a lovely weekend to you as well, Si! XXX-

  2. My favourite is fig cut in half (or quarters) ricotta cheese, drizzled with runny honey… Hmmmm.
    It’s by Jamie Oliver in one of his first books. We eat it as a desert, he ate it for breakfast.

    1. Woah, this sounds delicious… Will definitely have to try this one as well! Thanks for the tip Simone! Xo-

  3. ¡Fantástica receta! Fácil de elaborar con buenas fotografías y un resultado delicioso. Gracias por compartirla con todos/as.

  4. Looks so good! Here in Poland is difficult to reach fresh figs. I can buy it, but it`s rather “fresh”, so i prefere to buy in a can or the best solution is trip to Croatia :-)

  5. Looks lovely. Not that I expect it really matters but what is a ‘pint of figs’ surely they would be sold by weight and I have no idea how many you get in a pint. Purely curious of this imperial measurement… can you lift the fog for me?

    1. I apologize if my directions were unclear. The fig amount is roughly 2 cups. I usually count 3 to 4 stuffed figs per person. I hope this clarifies. Xx-
