Fruit doesn’t come much more luxurious that a perfectly ripe peach. It makes a beautiful base for this super simple dessert that is incredibly simple with impressive flavours.
Baking is great way to use up any overripe (or forgotten) about stone fruit as we say goodbye to summer for another year.
Baked Peaches with Vanilla Greek Yoghurt
½ cup plain Greek yoghurt
¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 ripe peaches, halved and stones removed
½ tspn ground cinnamon
2 tbspns pistachios, shelled and roughly chopped
2 tspns honey
1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Stir the vanilla into the yoghurt and mix well to combine. Refrigerate until needed.
3. Arrange the peach halves cut side up on a lined baking tray and sprinkle with the cinnamon.
4. Roast for 30 minutes or until softened and starting to caramelize (but still hold their shape).
5. Allow to cool slightly, the arrange two halves on a plate. Fill each stone hole with a generous dollop of Greek yoghurt, a teaspoon of pistachio crumbs and a drizzle of honey.
Of course you can use any yoghurt or nuts that you already have. A little sprinkle of muesli for nut free households is perfect too!
