Sautéed Peaches with Walnuts, Coconut Yogurt, and Basil Za'atar Dust
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
For my interpretation, I sliced up two peaches and sauteed them in a bit of butter and brown sugar. I then topped those sweet sliced gems with toasted walnuts, coconut Greek yogurt (Chobani and Siggi's offer a coconut flavor), fresh basil, and a dusting of za'atar. This dessert seems fancy, but it's surprisingly easy. Oh, and by the way, my friend Suzanne stopped by to taste the dessert and gave it her seal of approval!
  • 2 ripe (yet slightly firm) peaches, halved, pitted, and cut into 12 to 14 thin slices
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons brown sugar, divided
  • ¼ cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
  • One 5.3 ounce carton coconut Greek yogurt
  • Chopped fresh basil
  • Za'atar
  1. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add half the peaches in a single layer, and cook until golden on the bottom, about 1 minute. Flip each slice, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and half of the brown sugar, and cook 1 more minute. Divide the cooked peaches between 2 single-serving bowls and set aside.
  3. Repeat with the remaining peaches, salt, and brown sugar. (You don't need to add more butter, since there will be enough left in the skillet.)
  4. Top each bowl of fruit with the walnuts and a few spoonfuls of the yogurt; sprinkle with basil and za'atar to taste.
