Roasted Figs Grapes glutenfree sugarfree Luscious fresh figs are roasted with grapes, walnuts, thyme, fruity olive oil, and sea salt for a delicious and healthy dessert. Roasted Figs GrapesRecently I attended a dinner for the launch of Star California extra-virgin olive oil, and they were kind enough to send me home with a bottle to try out. I thought its light and fruity taste would pair well with this rich and sweet dessert. (While I was a guest at the dinner, I was not paid to write this post.)

No one will miss the sugar, as these fruits are loaded with natural sweetness.

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 pounds figs fresh
  • 8 ounces grapes seedless, organic
  • 1 cup walnuts raw (85 g)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (omit for very low sodium diets)
  • 1 lemons
  • 3-4 sprigs thyme (fresh)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400F (180C/gas mark 6).
  • Wash the figs and grapes thoroughly and remove the stems. Put in a large baking dish with the walnuts and thyme. Pour the oil over, and mix until everything is well coated. Grate the lemon zest over the top using a fine grater or Microplane zester.
  • Use your fingers to sprinkle the coarse sea salt (if using) evenly over the top.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then stir. Bake for another 3-5 minutes until the figs begin to turn golden brown. Cool to room temperature. Top with additional lemon zest and thyme sprigs.
  • Serve as is, or add your favorite soft cheese—cashew cheese, yogurt cheese, Brie, or goat cheese.

If you can't get fresh figs (when they're in season here, our neighbors beg people to take them) you can use dried Mission or Calmyrna figs (about 16 oz/450 g). I use a combination of red and green grapes for nice color and texture. The inspiration for this recipe came from Martha Stewart Living.
