Jamie Oliver’s new cookbook is all about Mediterranean flavours. 

5 Ingredient Mediterranean: Simple Incredible Food is a follow-up to Jamie Oliver’s first book. This time, the recipes take inspiration from Jamie’s lifelong travels around the Med. The book is packed with over 125 delicious recipes, each easy to follow. Most recipes are either meat-free or meat-reduced, and dishes include salads, soups, pasta and sweet treats. With minimal fuss and ingredients required, it’s possible to try something new and delicious every day of the week.

Take the fuss out of creating a show-stopping dessert with this super-quick no-cook fig tart – a delicate base of crushed fruit and nuts, topped with yoghurt, figs and a drizzle of honey.

RECIPE: Easy fig tart with fruit & nut base, vanilla yoghurt & honey

Serves: 8
Total time: 10 minutes, plus chilling

300g luxury fruit and nut mix 500g Greek yoghurt
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon runny honey, plus extra to serve
4 perfectly ripe figs

Line a 20cm springform cake tin with greaseproof paper. Tip the fruit and nuts into a food processor and blitz until fine and tacky (it should be easy to mould with your hands), then push and press it into the base of the lined tin, and 2.5cm up the sides. Leave to firm up in the freezer for 1 hour. When the time’s up, mix the yoghurt with the vanilla and 1 teaspoon of honey, then spoon into the chilled tart case. Freeze for 1 further hour, or until slightly set. Release the tart from the tin, halve or quarter the figs and arrange nicely on top, then drizzle generously with honey, to finish.
