Honey-Roasted Figs with Labneh & Pistachios

Labneh is a soft cheese made from strained yogurt. It is easy to make at home by simply adding a bit of salt and straining the excess whey with the help of a strainer and some cheesecloth or other porous fabric.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cup whole-fat plain yogurt
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cheesecloth
  • 8 large ripe figs cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 tbsp local honey divided
  • ¼ cup pistachios chopped

Instructions
 

To make the labneh

  • Combine yoghurt and salt in a small bowl and stir until blended.
  • Line a metal strainer with several layers of cheesecloth and position the strainer over a large, deep bowl.
  • Transfer the yoghurt mixture to the lined strainer and cover. Place in the refrigerator to drain for 1-2 days. (The longer the yoghurt is strained, the firmer the labneh will become).

To prepare roasted figs

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (205°C) and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking sheet. Arrange sliced figs on a baking sheet, cut side up, and drizzle with some honey.
  • Place baking sheet in preheated oven and roast for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes.
  • Top each roasted fig with a spoonful of fresh labneh and a sprinkle of chopped pistachios. Drizzle with some local honey and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

Tip: If you don’t have time to prepare the labneh for this recipe, you can substitute goat cheese or even cream cheese for a less tangy alternative.
