Easiest Fig Tart ever

simple_fig_tart-10

As a kid I never knew what fresh figs taste like, and what’s more, I didn’t know what they look like.  Where I lived we only had dried version of them, and I grew to hate them over the childhood years, finding the flavour to be too edgy. The first time I saw a photo of fresh figs in some food blog I thought this is the most photogenic fruit ever, but was still very suspicious about the taste. And only about 4 years ago I first tried them from Boqueria market  in Barcelona… now that brought up a new food addiction in me, and I’ve been trying to get my hands on figs whenever I could.

If you are, just like me, never tried figs before, it’s definitely time to start, as they’re still in season! Perfect in salads, amazing as a topping for your morning oats (caramelized with herbs these become just heavenly!), figs are also fantastic product because they act perfectly both in sweet and savoury combinations.

Here’s a very quick put-together tart, that can be a perfect dinner, if served with a green side salad, or a mouth-watering bite for your wine evening.
