Figs belong to Mulberry family. Figs are one of the richest plant sources of a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B, C and K, also calcium and iron. So, the fig is a healthy and versatile ingredient. However, they are very delicate and it is difficult to store them. If you have a large tree, then you need to be creative in finding ways to utilise the figs during their season.
Although, there are so many recipes offered on the Internet, I consider my recipe unique, which I have created via many adjustments. (Also, while trialing I was using many other fruits, however having fresh figs in mind!) The figs are not just delicate in their physical appearance, they are also very difficult to pair with the dough type, especially for this wheat free and sugar free version of it 🙂
Please try this pie below, it is really a rare treat.
Fresh Fig Pie
1 cup wholemeal Spelt flour (contains gluten)
3 tbsp Walnut
2 tbsp Teff flour
1 tbsp Birch sugar
1 tbsp Stevia sugar
1 tsp Bi-Carb soda
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup oil, any of your choice
35 g Ghee, melted
2 tbsp milk, any of your choice
300 g fresh figs
1/3 cup walnuts
Tools and equipment:
Round silicon pie form, about 18 cm in diameter
1. Preheat oven to 185C
2. Mix all the dry ingredients, flours and sugars. Make soda with vinegar to react, then mix all the base ingredients to get a soft dough.
3. Spread the dough in the pie form with a spatula and by pressing it lift it also on the sides of the form. Bake at 185C for 10 minutes.
4. In the meantime, cut the figs, each into 6-8 segments, and break the walnuts into small pieces. Grind 2/3 of these walnuts in the coffee grinder, then gently mix all of the walnuts with the fig pieces.
5. Take out the pie, evenly lay the figs out around on the base and put the pie back into the oven at 180C for 12 minutes. Serve cold.
