Grilled Peaches With Burrata, Honey and Basil

Categories > Gluten Free, Grain Free, Sides, Vegetarian

Are you ready for some summertime deliciousness? Nothing says warmer weather like grilled fruit, so get ready to please your barbecue crew with this serious crowd-pleaser: Grilled Peaches with Burrata, Honey and Basil. It’s seriously simple and simply fabulous all in one!

Peaches are one of those fruits that you might be able to buy for several months of the year, but they really don’t come into their juicy, ripe glory until early summer. This is when they start to show up at your Farmers Market and local grocery and, boy, are they worth the wait!

This recipe combines early summer’s sweet peaches with creamy burrata cheese (a combo of fresh mozzarella and cream) and then drizzles them both with honey and a sprinkle of basil.

Pro tip: Look for peaches just shy of ripeness for this recipe. They’ll hold their consistency better on the grill. And save those riper, juicier peaches for eating whole and raw in all their chin-dripping goodness!

While the grill’s still hot from the peaches, you might brush some crusty bread with olive oil and throw it on the grates as well. Assemble it all on a pretty platter garnished with arugula and maybe a sprinkle of pistachios or your favorite nuts, and you’ve got an incredible summer party staple guaranteed. Just be sure to make plenty because your guests will be coming back for seconds and thirds!

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Nature outdid itself when it created peaches. And while we know they’re delicious, we don’t often hear about how healthy they are. Well, we’re here to tell you that peaches are chock full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This includes vitamins A and C, and potassium, plus polyphenols and prebiotics to decrease inflammation.

High-quality honey is a source of antioxidants, such as flavonoids and phenolic acids, with darker versions tending to have more of these bioactive plant compounds.
