I’m a little late to the fig lovin’ game. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it was because I never grew up eating them or maybe it was because their season peaked during the time when berries were still gorgeously cheap and apple season was just on the horizon.

Either way I’m here now, eating their beauty in my morning oatmeal and on breakfast toast. I’ve had them on pizza paired with blue cheese, bacon, and a heaping pile of that zesty arugula. Seriously, figs are just too damn addicting.

This recipe is probably one of the easiest ways to eat figs. Just toast your favorite bread up, spread on an easy whipped honey lemon ricotta, top with figs and sprinkle with pistachios. Not so much a recipe, but more like a beautiful way and nutritious recipe to snack on (and enjoy those figs)!

For a full-rounded breakfast, serve with an egg or two. Enjoy!
