Part of me is a little sad that we are now into the fig and plum season and the strawberries and cherries are over but part of me is also nostalgic for the crisp days of Autumn. It also helps that I love fresh figs. I was able to buy 4 beautiful specimens in my corner supermarket for 59 cents each. I love them raw but roasting them briefly in the oven makes them even more succulent.
Total preparation and cooking time 10 minutes
4 fresh, ripe figs
4 teaspoons agave syrup
A small handful of walnut halves
Soya cream to serve
Cut the figs in half and drizzle with the syrup. Place the figs and walnuts in a baking tin and roast at 170 Celsius for about 8 minutes until you can start to smell the toasted walnuts. Remove from the oven and crush the walnuts with the back of a spoon. Serve the figs with the walnuts sprinkled over and soya cream poured on top.
