  • 10 fresh figs washed and halved
  • 100 grams blue cheese
  • 10 slices pastırma or prosciutto
  • 1 handful walnuts roughly broken
  • 1 tablespoon nar ekşisi


  • Arrange your halved figs over a large plate with the fruity side facing upwards.
  • Now take your blue cheese and walnuts and crumble them over the top of your figs.
  • Take your slices of pastırma and arrange them around the perimeter of your plate.
  • Now drizzle your nar ekşisi (pomegranate syrup) over the top of your figs and blue cheese.
  • Before serving, leave your platter to rest for around 10 minutes to allow your nar ekşisi to soak into the figs.


  • As with all of our recipes, the calories count for figs with blue cheese, walnuts and pastırma is approximate. 
  • This is a cold platter designed to share. And, although we have done it based on two people sharing, you could have it on your table as part of a larger spread so more people can enjoy it.
  • Feel free to play around with quantities. These are just the rough ones we used for our recipe.
