Fig Leaves

Fig Leaves

Supplied by Forager Ltd

This med-large leaves are best eaten cooked, as their texture can be a bit too rough when raw. 

With a wonderful coconut flavour, they can be used with any dish that works well with coconut. 

Suggested uses:

Wash well before use. 

Best use is to wrap cooked rice in them with some lemon grass or lemon slices and steam until the leaf softens. 

You can also use them to wrap meats, such as chicken or fish, drizzled with olive oil, sprinkle with a bit of salt and add some fennel or lemon or perhaps some peppers, tomatoes and onions and steam or roast them until the meat is thoroughly cooked, you could also add a sprig or two of the olive herb included in July's box!
