Figs | Three ways

It’s Fall which means it’s fig season. Finally! I was really looking forward having them again. I really felt the urge to also use them in other recipes than just over my granola in the morning (which is kind of boring). Figs are so fresh and juicy and really versatile, you can use them in sweet as good as in savory dishes.

So I tried three different things and want to share them with you. These recipes are vegan and super easy but so good. ( I don’t know if you can even call them recipes!)


Almond Butter and figs on sourdough:


You will need:

  • 2 slices of whole wheat sourdough
  • 2 figs
  • almond butter
  • cinnamon
  • maple syrup 

Method:

1.  Toast your bread and top it with as much almond butter as you want and sprinkle on some cinnamon.

2. Slice up your figs and put them on the bread.

3. Drizzle on some maple syrup for extra yumminess and voila, you have your finished toast!

 


Barley fig salad with cashew ricotta:

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of barley
  • Cashew ricotta (I used this recipe)
  • 3 figs
  • 1 cup of arugula
  • Balsamic reduction
  • pine nuts
  • salt and pepper

 Method:

1. Cook your barley

2. While it is cooking, make your cashew ricotta (you have to soak the cashews overnight)

3. Slice up your figs and put them in the oven at 150 C for about 10 minutes.

4. Roast your pine nuts until golden brown. (Keep an eye on them, they don’t taste good if they are too brown)

5. Assemble everything and drizzle some balsamic reduction over it.


Roasted figs with coconut yogurt:

You will need:

  • Figs
  • Coconut yogurt
  • Cinnamon
  • Agave syrup

Method:

  1. Slice up your figs but just to the middle. Then roast them in your oven at 150C for 10 minutes.
  2. Let them cool a bit down and put a teaspoon of coconut yogurt in the middle of each fig.
  3. Top them with some cinnamon and agave syrup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I served them with some vegan pancakes for brunch and the combination was divine! But you can also serve them as a healthy fall dessert.

I hope you enjoy these recipes, how do you like to eat your figs?
