I don’t create recipes the same way I post them. I think in arrows and chicken scratch and abbreviations. I have to make sure I write down oven temps and final cooking times and recipe titles or I’d end up with a pile of papers containing a list of ingredients and little else.
But some things just don’t need proper recipes or quantities or detailed instructions. A quick photo, a few simple ingredients and maybe a note or two will suffice.
And so with that I’ve decided to share an occasional Almost Recipe with you.
A list of ingredients, most likely without measurements. A few photos, possibly taken on my phone. A brief explanation, at times in the form of a rambling fairy-dance story. It’s like a pick and mix really – all colour and plastic scoops and paper bags and occasional sharing. Leave your pennies at the counter on the way out.
Without any further ado a quick snack inspired by a container of sweet figs and a package of salty fetta, because that’s how I roll.
Fig, Fetta, Tahini & Thyme
- fresh figs
- greek fetta
- picked thyme leaves
- brown rice cake, but you can use any other base including bread – or even salad leaves
- honey, optional
Spread base with tahini. You could make this without it but why would you?
Cut figs into 6 or 8 wedges – you can quickly caramelize them in a hot pan with a bit of coconut oil, but it’s not necessary.
Layer figs, fetta and thyme on base.
Drizzle top with honey if using.
