45 minutes,

plus 15 minutes chilling




  • 8 8 stalks fresh thyme

  • 6 6 fresh figs

  • 150g 150g blue cheese

  • 250g 250g crème fraîche

  • 3 3 eggs

  • 150ml 150ml milk

  • 1 Tbsp 1 honey, plus extra for drizzling

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • The Pastry
  • 75g 75g walnuts

  • 125g 125g wholemeal plain flour

  • 1 1 egg

  • 75g 75g butter, diced, plus extra for greasing

  • Sea salt


  • To make the pastry, grease a 24cm tart tin with butter. Finely chop 50g of walnuts. Place in a food processor with flour, egg, butter and a pinch of salt. Pulse until a dough forms. Add a little cold water if needed. Roll out pastry and use to line the tin, pressing firmly into the base and sides. Trim off any overhanging edges. Prick the base a few times with a fork and chill for about 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 160°C fan-forced. Pluck leaves from thyme, reserving a few for garnishing. Slice figs and chop blue cheese. Whisk crème fraîche with eggs, milk, honey and thyme leaves. Mix in 100g of blue cheese and season.
  • Pour half the mixture into the pastry case and top with half the figs. Cover with remaining mixture and top with remaining figs. Scatter remaining blue cheese over the top and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and set.
  • Chop remaining walnuts and scatter over tart, along with thyme. Serve warm or cold, drizzled with honey.

Market tips...


If checking for ripeness, figs should be soft and yielding when gently squeezed, but still hold their shape.

Good4 you!

Figs have more fibre than prunes and more potassium than bananas.
