Figs are in season. Here's a wholesome recipe from Eat Ting - ideal for breakfast, dessert or snack.

Figs are high in insoluble fibre, phytonutrients, vitamins B, A and E, and iron. The phytonutrient compounds protect us from cancers, diabetes, degenerative diseases and infections

Figs with Honey, Butter, Almonds & Coconut

Serves 4 8 Ripe figs 1 Tbsp Butter 1⁄2 Cup Raw Almonds, roughly chopped 1 Tbsp Desiccated Coconut 2 Tbsp Honey 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon Amasi Curds, Mascarpone or double cream, to serve

Heat grill to medium high. Cut a deep cross in the top of each fig and gently push open the incision so that it looks like a flower. Put the figs in a baking dish and place a small cube of the butter in the centre of each fruit. Arrange the almonds and coconut around the butter. Drizzle the honey over and then sprinkle with cinnamon. Grill until the figs are soft and the honey and butter have made a sauce in the bottom of the dish. Take care not to burn the almonds and coconut. Serve warm with dollops of amasi curds, mascarpone or yoghurt.

Allergens: nuts and dairy.
