As I promised, here is another peach recipe. This time I made probably the simplest and fastest home made dessert ever. It takes maybe 10 minutes all together, it's delicious and super light (it's almost 80% fruit!). It's one of those dishes that you want to make when you are craving some sophisticated and comforting dessert, but you don't want to spend the whole evening in the kitchen. All you do is broil some peaches, cover them with ice cream and blueberry sauce and it's ready to enjoy in minutes. Here is the recipe (4 servings):
* 4 peaches
* 1 cups fresh blueberries
* 1 tbsp white sugar
* 1 tbsp brown sugar
* 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
* vanilla ice cream
1. Halve the peaches, remove the pit and layer on a baking sheet cut side up. Sprinkle with a little bit of brown sugar and cinnamon and and bake at 400F for 5 minutes. Then turn on the broil on high and broil the peaches for about 3-4 minutes to caramelize the sugar on the top.
2. In the meantime, combine blueberries, mint and white sugar in a pot. Using a fork break down the berries a little bit and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Set aside and let it cool.
3. To serve the dessert, top two halves of broiled peaches with vanilla ice cream, pour some blueberry sauce on the top and voila, it's ready.
The peaches are warm, soft, sweet and cinnamony. Ice cream melts on top of the fruit and when you mix it with blueberry sauce, it's like a piece of heaven in your mouth. When I was "designing" this dish I had some idea how it could taste, but I have to be honest that it turned out to be way better than I thought and nothing like I expected! Super delicious!
