Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low fat, Low sugar, Wheat Free

This dish is absolutely scrumptious. You might be tempted to save it for a dinner party but why wait!. With the Omega 3 fats from the walnuts, and Vitamin C in the figs and orange, think of it as a heavenly medicine.

8 figs
2 tbsp honey
½ cup walnuts, chopped
2 oranges peeled and sliced

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.

To caramelize the walnuts, add 1 tbs honey and 2 tbs water to a small pan with the walnuts. Over a medium heat, stir the walnuts until the liquid has completely absorbed onto the nuts and they have turned dark golden in colour.
Quarter the figs and lay them on a baking tray. Drizzle 1 tbs honey over the fig quarters and roast in the oven for 8 minutes. Arrange the roast figs on the orange slices and top with the honeyed walnuts.
Serve with natural yoghurt.

Note : Buy fresh figs loose to inspect all around the fruit. Look for plump fruit with the skin intact. the skin should not be wrinkled or oozing. Dried figs should be plump and spongy to touch.
