Caramelized Figs with Yoghurt and Granola 

My uncle has a green fig tree in his backyard. Every summer, he would give us a generous portion of his harvest. We like to eat them fresh, but I also like making them into desserts. This recipe is fairly simple and is a good way to use up figs that are starting to get too ripe.  You can serve them with yoghurt and honey like I did or eat them with ice cream, even in a salad ! I made some granola the other day, so I added them for extra crunchiness. 

Makes about 4-6 servings

  • 6 fresh figs
  • 15 g unsalted butter 
  • 30 g demerara or brown sugar 
  • 300 g plain Greek yoghurt 
  • 60 mL honey 
  • 1 cup homemade granola 
  1. Cut figs in halves, coat with brown sugar 
  2. Melt butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat 
  3. Add figs, cut sides down
  4. Cook for about 3-4 minutes (be careful not to burn the sugar)
  5. Flip figs over, remove from heat 
  6. Serve warm with yoghurt, honey and granola
