Baked figs with balsamic

Sweet and savoury roasted figs with balsamic, salt and pepper.
Servings: 4


  • 4 figs
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • flaky sea salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Slice the figs in half lengthways and place on a baking tray cut side up.
  • Spoon about half a teaspoon of balsamic onto each fig, trying not to let too much run onto the baking tray.
  • Roast at 230c for about 7 minutes - until the figs are hot through, but not dried or shriveled. Take them out of the oven and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.


To make this recipe vegan, serve the figs with a lovely coconut ice cream instead of the cheese.
