Fig & Parma Tartines
Ingredients serves 4
6 fresh ripe figs, sliced
4 large slices sourdough bread
250g tub low fat cream cheese
Finely grated zest of half a lemon
4 slices Parma ham or prosciutto
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2tsp runny honey
How to prepare
Drizzle the sourdough slices with olive oil and toast on a hot griddle. If you don’t happen to have one, toasted (without the oil) will be almost as delicious.
In a small bowl, mix the ricotta, zest and season with freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. Spread over the bread, then top each one with a slice of ham.
In another smallish bowl, mix the balsamic and honey. Add the sliced fig and gently mix until coated.
Top the tartines with fig slices and drizzle over the remaining juices.
