Roasted Figs (makes 2 servings):
- ca 10 fresh Mission figs, halved
- 1/4 cup cabernet sauvignon
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- zest of 1 lemon
- 1 TB super-fine sugar
- 3 whole star anise
- 1 small cup Greek yogurt (like Fage)
- 1 TB + 1 ts honey
- 1/4 ts cinnamon
Arrange the figs in an oven-safe baking dish. In a small bowl, mix the cabernet, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and star anise. Pour over the mission figs, and bake for about 20 min.
Mix a small cup of Greek yogurt with honey and cinnamon. Serve 10 half mission figs, still warm, on a plate for each portion, and top with a 1/2 cup of the sweetened Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of honey.
