  • cutter / blender


  • 10 figs fresh, purple or green ones
  • 150 gr mascarpone
  • 3 tbl spoon fresh shopped mint leaves fresh peppermint,not the Morrocan sweet mint
  • 1 tbl spoon honey
  • 1 tbl spoon milk


  • A super easy-to-make appetizer that you can put on the table in no time.
  • Rinse the figs. Cut them in half lengthwise and stick a cocktail stick through all half parts.
  • Put the mascarpone, chopped mint leaves, honey and the milk together in the blender. Note… there are many types of mint. For this dish I used fresh peppermint leaves (not the same sweet mint from the Moroccan mint tea)
    Mix until the mint leaves are very fine and you get a light green cream.

  • Spoon a little of the mint mascarpone on each fig (or use a piping bag if you have one). Decorate each fig with a mint leaf and drizzle extra honey on top.
  • Are you an addict of black pepper? It may sound strange, but we also like this appetizer with a pinch of black pepper from the mill…


Figs from the garden… mint leaves from the garden and the honey comes from the village next door … I’ve also made this with the local goat cheese and it was sooo delicious….
