Yogurt and figs make a healthy breakfast or a light dessert

Roasted in orange juice, honey and rosemary, these savory-sweet fig parfaits are the perfect light dessert, breakfast or snack.

A sweet variation

For a less savory alternative, skip the rosemary and add a dash of cinnamon.  Use basic raw honey yogurt recipe for yogurt.

Make extra figs for salad

The roasted figs also make a nice addition to a green salad along with some walnuts and goat cheese.  If you are roasting for salad, make sure their is more room between the figs in the roasting pan.  If the figs are too close they stew, which is great for yogurt because you get a nice sauce.  For salads, you want the figs to roast and caramelize individually with less residual liquid.  The difference is simply how closely you pack them in the pan.

 

The inspiration for this recipe was my friend Craig who loves fig yogurt.

Breakfast or dessert? This dressed up, slightly savory yogurt parfait melds roasted figs, honey, orange juice, rosemary and a touch of salt and pepper. A great light dessert that you won't feel guilty about indulging in for breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 8 fresh figs, sliced in half
  • 1 t orange zest
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 t finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 6-oz containers basic honey yogurt

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Wipe a baking dish with a smidgeon of olive oil. Lay figs cut-side up and side-by-side in an 8" x 12" baking pan. Figs should be almost touching without a lot of extra room in pan. Adjust the number of figs you use to the size of your pan.
  2. Whisk together honey and rosemary. Drizzle over cut figs. Sprinkle salt and cracked pepper over figs. Pour orange juice on top of figs. Bake for 25 minutes checking about half way. The figs should be tender with a reduced orange/honey reduction surrounding them. Do not let reduction burn. Remove from oven and cool.
  3. Remove figs from pan and place in a storage container until ready to use. Spoon orange/honey reduction over figs. Can keep in fridge for a week.
  4. In a parfait glass alternate a spoonful of yogurt with roasted figs and orange-honey reduction. If you want to be fancy, garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
