Baked tomini with fig nuts and honey: today's recipe is not even a recipe in reality. Is’ plus a combination of flavors and textures. The tomini, cooked briefly in the oven, melt inside them becoming creamy and greedy. Pairing with rehydrated dried figs, nuts and honey, makes them an elegant vegetarian appetizer but very simple and quick to prepare. Or a hearty second course to accompany with homemade bread and sautéed vegetables. In season, you can also use fresh figs, that will give this dish a fresher and more herbaceous note.

As you can see in this very short VIDEO TUTORIAL, the recipe is really of an embarrassing simplicity. I only recommend that you rehydrate dried figs in hot water for at least 30 minutes. To the water you can add a little’ of grappa in order to obtain a more aromatic taste. As for honey, I recommend the chestnut one, slightly bitter on the finish. If you prefer a more delicate honey, try the one on or thistle. If you want to enhance the balsamic hints, then the right honey is that of eucalyptus. Baked tomino with fig nuts and honey will appeal to everyone: if you don't find the tomini, you can also use a small form of camembert. In this case, though, given the size you will have to portion the cheese in the dishes.

These tomini could also be a perfect appetizer for the holidays that, now, are at the gates. Indeed, take look at 20 appetizer recipes for the holidays to prepare in advance. You never know. Have a good day!
