Summer Recipe: Warm Grilled Peaches

August 21, 2016

Grilled peaches

In New York, MM and I were extremely fortunate to score an apartment with a backyard. The first necessary purchase was a grill. I had no idea how much this would change our cooking and eating habits. We started grilling weekly, first with meats and veggies, and then experimenting with different fruit. We’ve tried watermelon (tasty but honestly not worth the effort), bananas (yum) and one of my favorites–peaches.

When we moved to San Francisco, outdoor space for grilling was high on our priority list. Luckily, we moved into an apartment building complete with two large community grills. Even though having our own private grill in NYC was awesome, I think this is even better since you don’t have to worry about refilling the propane tank, a bit of a hassle, especially in NYC. Plus it’s cleaned daily. Cali perks!

I’m no pro on the grill, that’s MM’s area of expertise; I handle the fruit and veggie prep. Grilled peaches are on heavy rotation as dessert in our house. Prep is simple and it’s the perfectly sweet way to end a meal on a healthy note.

Grilled Peaches Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Fresh peaches, sliced into quarters
  • Coconut oil
  • Sea salt

How-To:

  • Place peaches in a large bowl and drizzle coconut oil on top. Depending on temperatures, coconut oil may be hard. If it is, microwave it for 20 seconds so you can more easily work with the liquid. You don’t need to overdo it on the coconut oil, just enough to give each piece of peach the lightest of coatings.
  • Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  • Mix together until peaches are evenly covered in the coconut oil. This is extra easy if your large bowl has a lid. Simply cover and shake around until well-mixed.
  • Heat grill to medium then place peaches on the grill. Watch closely for grill marks and once you see them, flip peaches to evenly grill on each side. If like ’em charred, keep them on a bit longer. Typically we keep the peaches on for about 3-5 minutes per side.
  • Remove from heat, wait a couple of minutes to allow the peaches to cool just slightly, then dig in!
  • If you’re having a decadent (yet still paleo!) night, top with So Delicious Coconut Ice Cream (watch out, it’s addicting)
