Recipe : Roasted Summer Fruits

This is the perfect way of using up the last of the summer fruit and heading towards autumn. It's also a lovely low-calorie and low fat dessert option - I'll be back to watching what I eat from next week when we go back to work and school and can get back into routine !

Roasted Summer Fruits

 4 nectarines or peaches, stoned halved or quartered
4-6 plums, stoned halved or quartered
4 figs
Cinnamon stick
Vanilla pod
200g caster sugar
2 tbsp water

To Serve:
Rachel’s low fat mango yogurt

 Serves: 4-6, Preparation time: 20 minutes


1.Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5

2.Take an ovenproof dish and place the fruit in the dish so it is packed tight

3.Add the cinnamon stick, split the vanilla pod slightly down the middle to release the seeds and flavour

4.Sprinkle over the caster sugar and water

5.Roast the fruits in the oven until the fruits are soft, starting to split and you have a delicious sticky sauce formed with the juices

6.Serve whilst still warm with a good spoonful of mango yogurt 

Tip: enjoy any leftovers for breakfast!
