It's closing in on the end of fig season and we're trying all sorts of things in our kitchen. This onion-fig relish is simple, quick and delicious. Serve it with any protein- meat, fish, cheese, tofu.
If you're lucky enough to have access to fresh figs, here is another recipe to try.
10-12 figs, quartered
2 medium onions, sliced thin
a splash of good balsamic vinegar
several tablespoons of neutral oil
1. Slice onions, quarter figs
2. Heat oil, slowly saute onion, until they are softened and just starting to brown (10-15 minutes)
3. Add the figs and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Cover and cook slowly until the liquid thickens into a syrup (approximately 10 minutes).
