How to Make it:
- Cut off the tip of the figs, then cross-cut each one at the top, being careful to not cut all the way to the bottom. Lightly squeeze the middle of each fig in order to open the top up
- In a bowl make the ricotta mix by combining all the ingredients together. Start with one tbsp of agave nectar, taste and adjust according to your preference
- Carefully fill the centre of each fig with the ricotta filling, you can pipe the filling in or simply use a small spoon.
- Top each fig with the pistachios and orange zest and eat immediately!
