There’s nothing like a sweet, juicy peach in the summer. With an abundance of peaches around, we think it’s nice to make a savoury peach recipe instead of another peach cobbler or crisp. Although we do have a delicious recipe for peach cobbler, in case you want a more classic peachy recipe.
The good news is, you don’t actually need a real grill to make this recipe! All you need is a cast iron grill pan. And, if you don’t have one of those, you can simply sear the peaches in a regular old skillet.
Dukkah is an Egyptian spice blend that’s made up of a combination of different nuts, seeds and spices. There are lots of variations of this recipe out there and ours is just one version. If you love texture and crunch in your meals, you’ll love the addition of dukkah. The toasted spices and crunch pairs perfectly with the soft, sweet peaches. And you can use the extra leftover dukkah on top of salads, roasted veggies or even served with sourdough bread and extra virgin olive oil (it’s absolutely delicious if you dip bread in olive oil and then into dukkah).
Grilled Peaches with Yogurt and Dukkah
- 2 peaches sliced in half
- 1/4 cup yogurt or dairy-free yogurt (such as coconut yogurt) unsweetened
- 2 Tbsp dukkah
- handful chopped cilantro or mint or basil
- 1/2 cup almonds or hazelnuts chopped finely
- 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp ground cumin or cumin seeds
- 1 tsp ground coriander or coriander seeds
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Preheat oven or toaster oven to 375 and spread the nuts, sesame seeds and spices out on a baking sheet. Roast for around 5 minutes or until just lightly toasted.
- Then add the toasted ingredients to a food processor (a mini sized one would probably work best here with the quantity) and pulse to finely chop. If you don't have a food processor, you can chop everything with a knife.
- Slice the peaches in half and remove the pits.
- Heat a grill pan with around 1 Tbsp of coconut oil. Once the oil is melted, spread around to coat the whole pan.
- Place the peaches flesh side down on the hot pan and cook for around 4 minutes. Carefully slide a spatula under the peaches and check for grill marks. Once they have light grill marks, flip and cook on second side for 2 minutes.
- To serve, add several spoonfuls onto a plate and place the peaches over top. You can add a few more dollops of yogurt on top of the peaches.
- Sprinkle 2 Tbsp of dukkah over top.
- If you want to use fresh herbs, add some chopped basil, cilantro or mint.
