Roasted Fig Greek Yogurt and Chai Spiced Sorghum Parfait Recipe

This Roasted Fig Greek Yogurt and Chai Spiced Sorghum Parfait is a protein packed breakfast that will get your morning going.

Have you ever tried roasted figs? How about sorghum? Until last week, I’d never tried either. Although I grew up with a dwarf fig tree in our yard (my dad was quite the gardener), we always enjoyed them fresh off the tree, never cooked.  I’d seen a few recipes for roasted and grilled figs, so I decided to try roasting some figs as well as grilling some.

I have to say I enjoyed the roasted figs more than the grilled ones. With a touch of maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon, the roasted figs stayed moist while concentrating their natural sweetness. These roasted figs are great as a topping for Greek yogurt, or you can make a heartier breakfast by layering some cooked whole sorghum with the yogurt before putting some of these roasted figs on top.
