Fig and Chocolate Tart

Hello September; I really love and enjoy this part of the year. Early autumn, all the fruits and vegetables at their best and yet, still warm weather outside. My very first autumn recipe is the Fig and Chocolate Tart. No added sugar, low fat, and the perfect autumn atmosphere. You can use any kind of figs, I have used mine, fresh-picked from a tree. As we all know, combining dark chocolate and figs is truly amazing. Let’s try this combo with some crispy puff pastry, roasted wallnuts and honey.


1 sheet puff pastry (250g)

8-10 fresh figs (depend on the size)

200g high quality dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)

3 table spoons honey

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Handful of wallnuts (chopped)

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Remove the puff pastry from the fridge; with a little flour, roll the pastry out to roughly fit a tart tin (24cm). Chill it in the fridge. On a water bath, gently melt the chololate, chopped wallnuts and vanilla together. Take out the tart tin from the fridge and spread chocolate and wallnuts evenly; then cover it with quartered figs and pour honey on top. Bake for about 35 mins until the figs are nicely caramelized. Bon Apetit
