Roasted Peaches With Cashew Cinnamon Cream and Caramelized Almonds [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Cook Time

40

Ingredients

  • 6 peaches
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 10.5 ounces drained silken tofu
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • Vegetable oil

Preparation

To Make the Cashew Cream:

  1. Place cashews in a blender and process until smooth. Add drained tofu, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and honey. Blend again until well mixed. Place cream in the fridge until ready to use. The cream can be made a day ahead and kept refrigerated in an airtight container.

To Make the Caramelized Almonds:

  1. Place the sliced almonds and caster sugar is a pan. Heat under medium heat, carefully stirring the almonds until the sugar turns to caramel. Remove from heat when almonds are all coated with brown caramel. Spread the almonds on parchment paper and leave to cool. Break into pieces when hardened.
  2. Heat the grill on high. (You can also grill the peaches on the barbecue).
  3. Cut peaches in half and remove the stones. Brush all over with a bit of oil.
  4. Place under the grill or barbecue until just cooked through.
  5. Carefully arrange peaches on a serving platter. Add a dollop of cream on top alongside chunks of caramelized almonds.

Notes

Peach stones can be hard to remove. If you run into difficulty, take a sharp knife to cut through the stones in half and leave them in. You can then discard the stones when eating.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
