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 for this Recipe :

  • 8 large ripe figs, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, chopped
  • 2 cup whole-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 tbsp local honey, divided
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cheesecloth

Alternative to Labneh :

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.

How to Make Oven Roasted Figs :

Step 1:

To make the labneh, combine yogurt 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.

Step 2:

Transfer the yogurt mixture to the lined strainer and cover. Place in the refrigerator to drain for 1-2 days. (The longer the yogurt is strained, the firmer the labneh will become).

Step 3:

To prepare roasted figs, pre-heat the oven to 350°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking sheet. Arrange sliced figs on the baking sheet, cut side up, and drizzle with some honey.

Step 4:

Place baking sheet in preheated oven and roast for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes.

Step 5:

Top each roasted fig with a spoonful of fresh labneh and a sprinkle of chopped pistachios. Drizzle with some local honey and serve immediately. Try this roasted figs recipe and Enjoy!
