Grilled Peaches with Labneh
SERVES 4. HANDS ON TIME: 15 MINUTES. TOTAL TIME: 20 MINUTES.
This appetizer uses Middle Eastern ingredients such as labneh, a strained yogurt, and sumac, a tart spice made from the sumac flower. Avoid peaches that are overly soft so they don’t fall apart on the grill.
4 firm peaches or nectarines, halved and pitted 1 cup labneh (see Chef’s Tip, p. 48) ½ tsp sumac (TRY: Spicely Organic Sumac Ground) ¼ tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper 1 cup arugula ½ lemon, juiced 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1. Preheat a greased grill to medium-high.
2. Add peaches to grill, pitted side down, and cook, turning once, until lightly grill marked but still crisp, about 2 minutes per side.
3. Spread each peach half with labneh over pitted side. Sprinkle with sumac, salt and pepper. Top with arugula, and then drizzle with lemon juice and oil.
