Roasted Figs with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto
Health Highlights


1 dash Black pepper (to taste)
12 medium Fig, raw
1 tbsp Honey (for drizzling)
12 slice Prosciutto
6 tsp Roquefort (blue) cheese (or goat cheese)
2 tbsp Slivered almonds
4 sprig Thyme, fresh


Heat your oven to 375F (200C).

Using a sharp knife, cut off the stems of the figs. Then cut an X into the stem side about ¾ of the way (do not cut all the way down or the figs might fall apart). Use your finger to open them up just a little. Drop about a ½ teaspoon of cheese into each fig and wrap a strip of ham around the bottom half (leaving a bit of the pretty top half poking though).

Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil (or use a silpat), and arrange the figs on it, leaving a bit of room between them. Sprinkle a bit of thyme and a cracked pepper on each fig.

Roast for about 8 to 12 minutes until the figs soften, the cheese melts and the ham becomes lightly brown. Arrange them on a platter and drizzle them with a little bit of honey and a sprinkle of almonds.
