Sauteed Figs

Sauteed Figs
Recipe ~ Joanne Gosselin, Israel

A delicious, sweet fig dessert that’s simple but sophisticated. 

8  figs
2-3 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons honey
Plain Greek Yogurt (or creamy white cheese in Israel)
Pistachios – ½ cup (about 24 pistachios)
1. Melt butter and honey in a skillet
2. Cut figs in half horizontally and place in pan – cut side down
3. Turn once and spread sauce in pan over figs
4. When figs are slightly browned and blistered remove from pan
To serve (4 people)
Place 4 halves on a small plate, drizzle with sauce from pan, top with a dollop of Greek yogurt, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with pistachios.
PIcture: For a larger gathering you can present a platter of the figs with toppings on the side. An excellent accompaniment is cool watermelon, sprinkled with feta cheese and mint.
This is also great as a starter or a fresh snack in summer!

  1. the suggestion of the watermelon with feta and mint makes my mouth water as does the recipe for the figs.
    I would never have thought of making figs that way. I remember when I was growing up we had a fig tree where we would eat the figs right off the tree, bright pink inside and so sweet.
