Nutritional values

Figs provide plenty of fiber, while cream cheese supplies the body with protein and bone-strengthening calcium. Pistachio seeds and olive oil provide unsaturated fatty acids for a balanced cholesterol level.

The stuffed figs are great as a small dinner for two, but are also great as part of a buffet. Then the recipe is enough for 6 portions!
