• olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely sliced
  • 50g pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 8 figs
  • 150g soft goat’s cheese
  • finely chopped to make 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1-2 tbsp clear flower honey
  • to serve salad leaves


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat a little olive oil in a pan, add the shallot and celery, and fry for 4-5 minutes until they begin to soften. Add most of the pistachios and keep frying for about 2 minutes, then season well and cool in a bowl. Trim the tops off the figs and cut them in quarters leaving the bases intact.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the pistachio and shallots with the cheese and press it into the centre of the figs. Stand them up in a baking dish and sprinkle on the remaining pistachios and the thyme. Bake for 5 minutes, then drizzle on the honey. Serve with some salad leaves dressed in olive oil.
