Magical Figs

You know those days where everything just seems off? Today is one of those days. I haven't been able to go to the gym because of an injury and everything else seems slightly askew. 

As a mid afternoon pick-me-up, I treated myself to some gorgeous figs.  I know it's weird, but I love going to the grocery store. Wandering around fresh produce instantly lightens my mood and makes every day better. Just like magic, my day got better. I hope these magical figs work for you too. 

If I had a grill, I would have grilled the figs. However, they were still amazing under a broiler. 

Ingredients (serves 1-2): 

  • 3 black mission figs
  • honey to drizzle
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • sea salt
Turn the oven onto broil. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the fig halves cut side up on the baking sheet. Broil the figs cut side up until they are lightly browned and softened, about 1 to 2 minutes (time will vary depending on oven). Immediately drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve warm by themselves or on top of vanilla ice cream or greek yogurt.
