Honey, Balsamic & Rosemary Roasted Figs


These roasted figs are brimming with sweet-and-savory flavors. The final dish tastes like a less sweet, chunkier version of fig jam but also delivers savory depth, thanks to the rosemary and salt. Add these roasted figs atop yogurt, ice cream, toast or even grilled pork or chicken.

  • 2 pounds firm-ripe fresh figs (about 35 figs), halved lengthwise

  • 3 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 5 sprigs rosemary

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed

  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon)

  2. Roast in preheated oven until figs soften slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven; flip figs using tongs. Sprinkle baking sheet evenly with butter cubes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
