Broiled Peaches

When you don’t have a grill readily available, just turn on the broiler! Simple, eh? I got a bag of peaches last weekend with the intention of making peach pie. However, between the heat and falling short about 2 cups of peaches, I decided to do something much simpler. This is one of my favorite summer treats- relatively guilt free and amazingly sweet.

Broiled Peaches

  1. Preheat the broiler and move the oven rack 6 inches away from the heat source.
  2. Halve the peaches, remove the pits and sprinkle with a light layer of brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Place the peaches face down on a foil lined broiler pan or a baking sheet. Broil for 3-5 minutes, until tender and caramelized.
  4. Serve warm with your favorite ice cream, fresh whipped cream, goat cheese or fresh ricotta!

Tip: If you want to leave the skin on, brush it with a bit of melted butter so that it doesn’t char.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
