The last few of the Trader Joes’ mission figs were more than ripe and baking them in red wine with spices and serving them with Greek yogurt sweetened with honey and cinnamon was the last fig recipe for the season. A luxurious, simple ending to the fig season!
Roasted Figs (makes 2 servings):
- ca 10 fresh Mission figs, halved
- 1/4 cup cabernet sauvignon
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- zest of 1 lemon
- 1 TB super-fine sugar
- 3 whole star anise
- 1 small cup Greek yogurt (like Fage)
- 1 TB + 1 ts honey
- 1/4 ts cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400F.
Arrange the figs in an oven-safe baking dish. In a small bowl, mix the cabernet, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and star anise. Pour over the mission figs, and bake for about 20 min.
Mix a small cup of Greek yogurt with honey and cinnamon. Serve 10 half mission figs, still warm, on a plate for each portion, and top with a 1/2 cup of the sweetened Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of honey.
