I saw the most beautiful figs at Whole Foods the other day, so I thought, “Why not roast them?” When they came out of the oven, I drizzled them with honey and topped them with pepitas and shaved Parmesan cheese. My neighbors were outside having a glass of wine so I took them over to share. Minutes later, Roasted figs with Honey and Pepitas were gone. Get the last of summer figs before the season is over.
Roasted Figs with Honey and Pepitas
3 cups fresh figs, halved
4 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup pepitas
1/3 cup freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Place figs on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until figs begin to darken and caramelize. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Place on a large serving platter and drizzle with honey. Top with pepitas and cheese. Serve immediately.
