I will admit that I used to be a little adverse to figs.  They puzzled me and I never knew how to use them.  That changed when I started experimenting with figs, not at home, but when I went out to eat.  I would try dishes that had figs included and I really, really liked the flavour and texture of these little gems.  Figs are one of the highest plant sources of calcium and fibre and contain tons of antioxidants.  They have a combustion of flavours and textures; they are sweet, chewy, smooth and a little crunchy – just perfect.

Figs continue to be available through the Fall and this recipe is fantastically delicious and a great way to serve an unconventional fruit.  This recipe would be great for a brunch and is super quick to prepare.  It looks great, and tastes awesome.

Figs are a very perishable fruit, so purchase them only a day or two in advance.  Choose ones that have a rich, deep colour and are tender to the touch, but not mushy.  Be a little delicate with them as they can bruise.


  • 1 tablespoon honey, plus more for drizzling
  • 8 ounces fresh figs, halved
  • 2 cups plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios


  1. Heat honey in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook figs, cut sides down, until caramelized, about 5 minutes.
  2. Serve over yogurt with cinnamon and pistachios. Drizzle with honey, if desired.

Yummy, yum, yum!
