Fig season has finally arrived and what better way to enjoy them than for breakfast. I love eating fresh figs, but have you ever tried caramelizing them? The process is quite simple, and in less than 2 minutes you can enjoy figs in a new and flavorful way. —The-Broken-Bread
What You'll Need
Fresh Figs, thinly sliced
Butter or Coconut Oil
Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup, or Honey
Thinly slice figs and set aside.
Place a small nonstick skillet on medium low heat. Then add butter, brown sugar, and salt and mix together as the butter melts.
Once the mixture is bubbling up a bit, place the sliced figs into the pan, letting them cook for about 1 minute.
Flip each slice and cook the other half for about 30 seconds. Pour figs and their juices into a bow and let cool for a few minutes.
Divide the caramelized figs and their juices between two servings of yogurt and sprinkle with cocoa nibs.
