Quick Healthy Lunch Recipes – Honeyed Figs On Warm Pita

Last Updated on September 19, 2020 by Ellen Christian

I’m always looking for quick healthy lunch recipes.  Since I work at home, I don’t want to take a long break to make and eat lunch.   I want something that is quick but also healthy.  Normally, I choose one of two things for lunch.   I either make a sandwich or I make a salad.  Some days, I get a bit tired of eating the same things for lunch.  Often when this happens, I turn to fast food for something different.  This has definitely got to stop so I’ve been searching for quick healthy lunch recipes that are a little bit different.

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 2 cups of plain, whole yogurt
  • 2 pita bread rounds
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 8 ripe figs, cut in half


  1. Place the yogurt in a sieve lined with a coffee filter and set over a bowl. Let drain overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, discard the water and place the yogurt cheese in a bowl.
  2. Warm the pitas in a 350F oven for 3 minutes. Spread with the yogurt cheese, drizzle with the honey and top with the figs.

Honey Crafting says that this recipe is a traditional breakfast in the Middle East because the thick consistency of the honey pairs perfectly with the juicy pulp of figs.  I agree that they make a great combination and this made a fantastic light lunch on a day I wanted something different than the traditional quick healthy lunch recipes I usually choose.
