Not really a recipe, but I created this “dessert” the other day and it was so good that I had to share!
I wanted to make a nice and sort of fancy dessert the other day for me and the husband so that we could have a little time together (after Matheus went to bed) to try the nice bottle of wine I got for him as an anniversary present.
The day before I found some fresh figs at a very decent price at the store and bought a ltitle box. Oh my, so good were those figs, nice, soft, sweet. Perfect!
I halved them, sprinkled just a tiny bit of brown sugar on top, and broiled them for 3 minutes, just to get them warm a little softer. Then I mixed up some Greek yogurt (and I bet mascarpone would be even better here, in place of the yogurt) with honey and a little scraped vanilla beans, formed into “quenelles” (did I spell it right?) and placed them on a plate. I then put 3 pieces of fig on each plate and drizzled some warmed up honey. Was it good! Super tasty, sooooo delicious! Perfect paired with our wine, and so romantic!
I would choose this dessert over any other at any time, without blinking.
Simple, yet decadent. Fresh figs are so good on their own that I don’t even like to use them in recipes, preferring to eating them as they are. But this little creation of mine did embellish them beautifully!
