Total Time 30minutes
2lbpurple figs-halved or sliced
1tbspcoconut sugar or brown sugar(optional)
1/4cfresh basil leavesfor garnish
Preheat your oven to 400”F
Use the butter to coat a large roasting tray all over.
Rinse the figs well and cut off the stem. Slice them in half lengthwise and add them to the buttered roasting tray.
Sprinkle the coconut sugar all over the top, together with the vanilla extract, balsamic vinegar and honey. Squeeze the lemon all over and give everything a gentle toss to coat. Try to arrange the figs cut side down if possible in one single layer.
Roast the balsamic coated figs in the preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, until caramelized to your liking and the balsamic honey sauce has reduced to a syrupy consistency.
Serve on pizza with goat cheese, ricotta or as a dessert sauce.
If you happen to forget about the figs in the oven and the sauce reduces a little bit too much, just hit the pan with a good squeeze of lemon juice to deglaze it.
