October 3, 2013 0 Comments

Whether you’re planning a Da`wat meal or feel like a posh family dinner, here’s a Fig and Coffee flavoured compote that tastes sumptuous even the day after.

• Halal/Vegan • Serves 4+ • 15mins cooking times


  • 4 whole figs
  • 1⅔ cups of freshly brewed coffee
  • ½ cup of honey
  • 1 vanilla pod

1. Wash and quarter 4 figs in a single layer (16 pieces)
2. In a shallow fry-pan add the coffee, vanilla seeds scraped from the pod and honey. Heat and bring to the boil until the syrup is reduced to ¾ of a cup.
3. Prick the fig skins. Add to the syrup.
4. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
5. Remove figs and after cooled, pour the syrup back over the figs and leave to rest for 1 hour.

TIPS: Use as a compote, spread on biscuits, or any bread served with eggs as breakfast. Convert to a dessert with Greek yoghurt or vanilla ice cream.

For recipes on The Eco Muslim, the serving sizes are for sharing, as Prophet Muhammad of Islam, Allah’s peace be upon him, said his favourite dish was one that had many hands in it!

You will find that after following the Islamic eating etiquettes, it does not take as much food as expected to satisfy. This is a reminder to be humble and grateful that what we have is more than enough to suffice for all of us.

“The food of one person suffices for two, the food of two persons suffices for four persons, and the food of four persons suffices for eight persons.” – A saying of Prophet Muhammad, Allah’s peace be upon him. Reported by Jabir bin `Abdullah, radhi-Allah `anhu (may Allah be pleased with him).
