roasted figs

If you're able to get your hands on some fresh figs, consider yourself lucky! I absolutely love fresh figs, and one of my favorite preparations is to simply roast them. Then they can be used on all sorts of dishes!

We just roasted these beauties and then served them with goat cheese and local honey- amazing! We also tried them over vanilla ice cream- also delicious! Of course the list goes on, just think of all the possibilities...

The prep is easy. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Snip the stems off the figs, and then cut them in half. Place all the figs skin side down on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and add a few fresh sprigs of thyme. Roast for 10 minutes. Allow the figs to cool for about 10 minutes, then serve.

You can also store these roasted figs in a sealed container in the fridge for a few days. Enjoy!
