Wednesday Specials: Grilled Fig, Hazelnut and Ricotta Crostinis



Today I have a very easy recipe for you with spectacular results:


Grilled Fig, Hazelnut and Ricotta Crostinis
Serves 4 to 6

1 cup part skim ricotta
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon hazelnuts, lightly toasted
1/2 cup honey, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
10-12 fresh figs (mission or kadota or whatever is available), cut in half lengthwise
1/2 French or sourdough baguette, sliced into ½ inch slices and lightly toasted


1. Place ricotta, hazelnuts, 1/4 cup honey, and ground cinnamon in a food
processor and process until smooth. Set aside.
2. Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Brush figs with oil and place cut
side down onto the hot surface and grill on each side for 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool, about 5-7 minutes.
3. To assemble: Spread 1-2 tablespoons ricotta mixture onto each crostini and
top with a grilled fig; finish with a drizzle of honey and serve.
