Ingredients

1
12 fresh figs
2
2 tablespoons honey
3
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
4
1 tablespoon olive oil
5
Pinch of salt
6
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
7
Optional: Crumbled goat cheese, chopped nuts (such as walnuts or almonds), fresh herbs (such as thyme or rosemary) for garnish

Method

1
Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
2
Rinse the figs under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Cut off the stems and slice each fig in half lengthwise.
3
In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
4
Place the fig halves in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, cut side up.
5
Drizzle the honey-balsamic mixture evenly over the fig halves, ensuring they are well coated.
6
Roast the figs in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until they are soft and caramelized, but still hold their shape.
7
Once roasted, remove the figs from the oven and let them cool slightly on the baking sheet.
8
Transfer the roasted figs to a serving platter or individual plates. If desired, sprinkle crumbled goat cheese and chopped nuts over the top for added flavor and texture.
9
Garnish the roasted figs with fresh herbs, if using, and serve them warm as a delicious appetizer, side dish, or dessert.
10
Enjoy the rich, caramelized flavor of roasted figs with your favorite accompaniments, or simply savor them on their own for a delightful treat.
