A simple dessert or breakfast that brings together two Mediterranean classics. Though the recipe calls for either white or turbinado sugar, the later yields a better carmelization on the figs. Have not tried brown sugar but it may also work quite well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place figs in a glass baking dish cut side up. Sprinkle with sugar. Broil on high for 5 minutes. The sugar topping should syrupy and bubble a bit.
  2. I prefer plain yogurt, but if you like a sweeter dish mix 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar into the yogurt.
  3. Spoon yogurt onto bottom of dessert bowls or plates. Place figs on top.

Figs were on sale this week and I was looking for a simple dish. I'm glad I found this one. Really good. I had it on yoghurt and husband on vanilla ice cream.

I did use plain yogurt. I torched the figs with my CREME BRULEE MICRO TORCH. Made it quick and easy!
