Ingredients

8 to 10 fresh figs, halved

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

1 cup salted roasted mixed nuts, plus chopped nuts for topping

1 tablespoon peanut oil

3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

2 tablespoons honey, plus more for drizzling

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Toasted multigrain bread, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the figs with the olive oil and a pinch of salt in a baking dish. Roast until soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, puree the nuts and peanut oil in a food processor until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the ricotta, honey and cinnamon and pulse until combined, about 1 minute.
  3. Spread the ricotta mixture on the bread and top with the roasted figs. Drizzle with honey and top with chopped nuts.
