Figs are rich in minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and copper and are a good source of antioxidant vitamins A and K. This tart is a fun and beautiful way to get those vitamins and minerals.

For an added treat, when serving, cut into slices and add some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.
