From 100 Best Health Foods. “Fresh and dried figs are rich in fiber and high in iron, boosting energy and promoting healthy blood.”


  1. Preheat broiler to high. Arrange figs, cut-side up, on the broiler rack. Brush with 2 tablespoons honey. Sprinkle chopped rosemary over, if using.
  2. Place under pre-heated broiler for 5-6 minutes, or until just beginning to caramelize.
  3. To make the sabayon, lightly whisk the eggs with the remaining honey in a large, heatproof bowl, then set over a saucepan of simmering water. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs and honey together for about 10 minutes, or until pale and thick.
  4. To plate, place 4 fig halves on 4 serving plates, add a generous spoonful of the sabayon, and serve immediately.
