This is your captain speaking… Captain Obvious… You’ve made a lot of jokes about me and I do not like it. Anyhow. What I have here isn’t even a recipe, because, duh, it’s all in the title. Consider it a suggestion in your “make end-of-summer life more delicious” suggestion box.
And this here… This is all you need. As I mentioned before, goat cheese is a natural in a dessert setting, like a cornflower in a corn field or a cracked-out celebrity in rehab.
Those pretty, pretty grill marks are like a really nice tan–for food. Fast food restaurants basically paint them on–did you know that? McRibs and Snooki… They have at least one thing in common. I hate to mother you, but you know what you should do? Grill real food for real, and wear sunscreen. It’s the savvy thing to do. Food doesn’t get skin cancer, but we might.
Then, you put some goat cheese on a beautifully marked, warm peach half. It starts to melt a little, which is beautiful and delicious. Drizzle some honey on it, and sprinkle with toasted walnuts.
Grilled Peaches with Goat Cheese, Honey and Walnuts
2 ripe peaches, halved
3-4 tablespoons goat cheese
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
Grill peaches for a few minutes on each side, until warmed through and marked. Top with goat cheese, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with walnuts. Serves 2 hungry people, or 4 not-so-hungry people.
