Free Healthy Recipe - Grilled Figs in Rose Syrup Sauce with Roast Pistachios

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low sugar, Wheat Free

Adam and Eve dressed in fig leaves and presumably they feasted on the fruit of the fig tree. There are few more sensual fruits than the fig. Naturally sweet they need little done to them to complete a romantic, yet very healthy meal.

2 tbsp pistachio kernels, roughly chopped
4 whole cardamom pods
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tbsp rosewater
1 tsp orange rind, cut finely
4 figs fresh, cut into halves

Dry roast the pistachios in the syrup and cinnamon in a small pan for 4 - 5 minutes stirring continuously. Set aside.

Gently press the cardamom pods with the blade of a knife to open without crushing. Heat the maple syrup, rosewater and cardamom together with the orange rind.
Brush the figs with the syrup and grill under a hot grill for 4 - 5 minutes.
Serve with the rose syrup sauce and pistachios sprinkled on top.

Note: Figs are an alkalising food and help neutralise acidic conditions resulting from a diet high in meat and refined food.
