Ingredients

  • 40 g walnut pieces
  • 8 large fresh figs
  • 100 g rindless goats' cheese
  • 3 tbsp clear honey
  • 4 large mint leaves, finely shredded

Tips and Suggestions

Ripe figs become soft like a peach when they are ripe but they shouldn't be too mushy or they will fall apart

Method

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Spread the walnuts on a baking tray and carefully toast them for a minute or two until lightly golden. Remove and leave to go cold.

2. Cut a deep cross into the top of each fig, about two-thirds of the way down to the base, and then give them a gentle squeeze to open them up slightly like a flower. Divide the goats' cheese between each fig and place them on a baking tray. Grill for 34 minutes until the figs are soft and the cheese is bubbling and lightly golden.

3. Lift the figs onto plates and drizzle a little honey over each one. Sprinkle with the walnuts and mint before serving.
