Tahini Dried Figs
My favorite way to eat figs (and tahini). So simple it doesn’t need a recipe but I’m putting it here anyway because the world needs to know.
Yields: About 2 servings as a dessert or snack
A large handful of dried Calimyrna figs
3 tbsp tahini
½ tsp arrowroot powder (optional)
1 tsp lemon juice
If you want a thicker tahini filling add the arrowroot powder. If you don’t mind a drippy, messy tahini then feel free to skip it.
Whisk tahini, arrowroot powder and lemon juice together.
Cut a small indentation into the thickest part of the dried fig. Continue with the remaining figs.
Stuff about a 1 tsp of the tahini filling in each fig.
Attempt to close the fig back up.
Stuff in mouth.
