Honey Roasted Peaches with Goat Cheese

Features:
    • 20 minutes
    • Serves 8
    • Easy

    Directions

    I love and appreciate raw fruits and vegetables but sometimes it’s fun to play with food and elevate it! In this case roasting these oh so sweet and juicy peaches. The honey goat cheese pairs well with these peaches and makes a great appetizer or dessert! And since I am a brunch lover, I think this dish is a great brunch item! It’s easy to make and can feed a crowd!

    Also – instead of goat cheese, pair the roasted peaches with your favorite kind of ice cream for a more sweet dessert!

    A quick note about the peaches and honey – I encourage you to seek our local ingredients, in the spring and early summer peaches are in season and your local farmer’s market might have them! Supporting your local businesses and communities makes a big difference in your local economy and often times local products are simply better!

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Roast The Peaches

    Preheat the oven to 450F. Next, remove the goat cheese from the refrigerator, you want it to be at room temperature so it will be easier to work with.

    While the oven preheats, cut the peaches with a small paring knife length wise, then twist to separate the halves and use the paring knife to cut out the pits.

    Add the peach halves to a parchment lined baking sheet or baking dish then drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of honey, and 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper.

    Roast the peaches for 15 minutes.

    Make the Honey Goat Cheese

    While the peaches are roasting in the oven, make the honey goat cheese.

    In a bowl, add the goat cheese, 1 tbsp of honey and the zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon. Stir and give it a taste. Adjust the sweetness or tartness, if needed.

    Place in the refrigerator until the peaches are done.

    Stuff The Peaches

    Once the peaches are done, remove from the oven and add about 2 tablespoons of the honey goat cheese on top of each peach half. Drizzle over a bit more honey and add chopped pecans and chives. If you are serving this as a dessert omit the chives or add chopped, fresh mint instead!
