Ingredients
  • 8-12 figs
  • 15g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 4 tbsp Asda Squeezy Pure Acacia Honey (or any other clear honey)
  • 4 tbsp apple juice or sweet sherry
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 200g pot Asda Fat Free Greek Style Yogurt
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Cut a cross in the top of each fig, almost but not quite to the bottom. Gently open them out slightly so that the red flesh is exposed. Grease an ovenproof dish just large enough to hold the figs in a single layer with butter and put the figs in it.

  • Heat the butter, 3 tbsp honey, apple juice or sherry and cinnamon in a small pan until the butter melts. Pour over the figs, making sure some goes in the centre of each fig.

  • Cover the dish with a lid or some foil and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Baste with the juices, then return to the oven for another 10 minutes.

  • Mix the remaining 1 tbsp honey with the Greek-style yogurt. Top the figs with the yogurt mixture, then serve straight from the dish.
