Here’s another dish with figs. Almost finished all the figs from my garden. This is the last batch of figs till next year when it’s on season again. I am glad that I have make use of my figs in so many ways. From breakfast with cereal, added to soups and to lunch and dinner. Then make cakes, pudding, panna cotta and added to Asian dessert as well.
Glad I have use all my culinary skill to make use of figs. Thanks to God for the abundant figs and helps with creative ideas. I am pleased to be able to share all my figs dishes with everyone. Figs certainly are a great fruit to have and a great use too.
As my last dish, got to be macaroni. This is a simple dish with nothing extravagant ingredients just everyday ingredients added to fig. I dare say it’s a delicious, comforting meal to be eaten last. I thoroughly enjoy every recipes that I have created with figs. Let’s cook!!!

Put macaroni and enough water in microwave safe bowl, microwave about 16 minutes until macaroni is al dente and cooked. Drain and reserved 1/2 cup water. Set aside.
In a blender, add figs and about 30 ml water and blend until pureed. Then pour into a pan with vegetables stock to warm up and mix well. Once it’s warm add macaroni, toss to coat well.
