Roasted Figs with Honey and Pepitas

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.

  1. I’m such a fan of figs, and I can’t believe I haven’t picked them up this year yet! I love figs lightly grilled w/ a drizzle of honey and cheese (gorgonzola for me). I’ll have to try roasting them too!

  2. Alison, these look delicious! I’ve got to get some figs to make this for my family. I know they would love it. And roasted… genius!
