For me ‘Peaches’ screams spring and just gives me that happy feeling of mild sunny days with cool breeze and green grass…just the mere thought brings a smile on my face. And when we recently went to our local farmers market, I came across this local vendor who was selling fresh peaches and nectarines. So we bought a whole crate of peaches (they looked so fresh, aromatic and how could you leave them) which I realized was too much when I tried fitting them in our fridge….it seriously looked very peachy, lol. Don’t worry, I did distribute some and the first thing that I made were these grilled peaches. Now, grilling fruits is a completely new concept for me as we hardly used to grill any fruits in India apart from tomato and pineapple. So, I’m totally loving this new found culinary skill (since past 2-3 yrs) and if this is the first time you’re grilling a fruit, you’re in for a very delicious surprise. Grilling a fruit simply adds this extra layer of smokiness along with slightly caramelized taste to the already sweet flavor, which is more or less umami…..I don’t think I can do justice with words but you should try it for yourself. These were some really ripe peaches, so the moment they were grilled, they had this really sweet smokey fragrance going on which is divine that you may want to just eat them as is but hang in there for 2-3 more minutes, add the mentioned topping of yogurt, honey, some mint leaves and a sprinkle of cinnamon – now if you taste all these flavors together…I can guarantee you’d be in a very awesome place …. like sweet heaven why haven’t you ever tried them like this before. Trust me, it’s like eating dessert for breakfast and it being totally healthy 🙂 So, go ahead and get those fresh peaches from your local farmers market or other store and make these ‘Grilled Peaches with Yogurt and Granola (Healthy Breakfast)’ and I guarantee you would absolutely fall in love within the first bite. That grilled smokey warm peaches with cold yogurt is like made for each other.
