Fig and Sweet Onion Casserole

(Quantity of ingredients depends on the number of people.)

A great accompaniment to roast pork or grilled sausages. It's also tasty at room temperature or for a picnic.

Basic Ingredients:


  • Arrange fig and onion quarters alternately around the dish with the curved (outer) side down. Push them together to fit snugly against each other, but don't over lap them. (One of the aesthetics of this dish is to see the alternating color pattern of the reddish figs and yellow onions.)
  • Add just enough white wine to barely cover the bottom of the dish. Don't let the onions and figs float in the wine.
  • Sprinkle liberally with balsamic vinegar and thyme leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and sea salt.
