Roasted Figs with Fresh Ricotta

 PREP TIME: 5min
COOK TIME: 15min
SERVES: 4 servings


  • 6 to 8 Mission figs, halved
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Fresh ricotta or fat free Greek yogurt, for serving


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Put the figs, cut side up, in a baking dish.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat, and whisk in the honey, cinnamon and salt.
Drizzle the hot honey butter over the figs and roast in oven until very soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
Divide the fresh ricotta or fat free yogurt among 4 serving dishes and top with the warm figs and sauce.

Cook’s Note: These hot figs are really great over mixed greens or even on a toasted baguette as a crostini.
