Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Cashew Sour Cream or coconut yogurt
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/tsp freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/tsp vanilla powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/cup maple syrup or gluten-free brown rice syrup
  • 6 ripe but firm peaches, halved and pitted

For the Praline

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Combine Cashew Sour Cream or coconut yogurt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg (if using), vanilla, and salt in a bowl. Set aside. (You can do this in advance; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.)
  2. Toast walnuts in a dry nonstick or cast-iron pan over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown. Add the 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and salt and stir to coat. Cook for a minute more, and then tip walnuts out of pan and spread them on a sheet of parchment paper. Once walnuts are cool, roughly chop them.
  3. Heat a grill pan over high heat or preheat a panini press according to manufacturer’s instructions. (The pan must be really hot before you start to grill the peaches.) Lay fruit cut-side down on pan and cook for 3 minutes, or until grill marks appear. Serve with ginger cream, the 1/4 cup of maple syrup, and walnut praline.
