Honey-Roasted Figs with Labneh And Pistachios

Labneh is a soft cheese made from strained yogurt. It is easy to make at home by simply adding a bit of salt and straining the excess whey with the help of a strainer and some cheesecloth or other porous fabric.

Tip: If you don’t have time to prepare the labneh for this recipe, you can substitute goat cheese or even cream cheese for a less tangy alternative.

  • 2 cup Whole-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Cheesecloth
  • 8 Large ripe figs, cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 tbsp Local honey, divided
  • 1/4 cup Pistachios, chopped


  • To make the labneh, combine yogurt and salt in a small bowl and stir until blended. Line a metal strainer with several layers of cheesecloth and position strainer over a large, deep bowl. 
  • Transfer yogurt mixture to the lined strainer and cover. Place in the refrigerator to drain for 1-2 days. (The longer the yogurt is strained, the firmer the labneh will become). 
  • To prepare roasted figs, preheat oven to 350°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking sheet. Arrange sliced figs on a baking sheet, cut side up, and drizzle with some honey.  
  • Place baking sheet in preheated oven and roast for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes. 
  • Top each roasted fig with a spoonful of fresh labneh and a sprinkle of chopped pistachios. Drizzle with some local honey and serve immediately. Enjoy!
