Think those juicy peaches are best suited for a cobbler? Think again. While peaches are available in most regions of the U.S. from May to October, their taste peaks in the late summer months, so take advantage of this seasonal favorite now. The versatile fruit stars in a number of desserts and also makes the perfect accompaniment to savory dishes—plus, they’re good for you!
According to Rebecca Lewis, in-house dietician at HelloFresh, “Peaches are loaded with fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins to keep your appetite satisfied, hair glowing, and skin smooth.” Here, Rebecca shares her favorite peach-packed HelloFresh recipes.
Rebecca says: “Juicy fruit with peppery arugula and tender pork drizzled with herby pan sauce is a surprising but winning combination!”
Rebecca says: “An upgrade from ordinary toast, these tartines are topped with creamy ricotta, summery greens, and succulent caramelized peaches. It’s practically a no-cook meal, which means you’ll be “toasting” to dinnertime in under 30 minutes.”
Rebecca says: “The recipe takes skewers to whole new level by adding peach slices to a Jamaican-inspired dish. Tender chicken and curried rice round out this sweet and savory recipe to remember.”
Rebecca says: “Sweet peaches, plus crunchy walnuts and creamy mozzarella create the ultimate summer flatbread.”
Rebecca says: “Although nectarines are firmer than peaches, they’re just as sweet. Together, the two make for a knockout pair in this refreshing salad. Pop the fruit under the broiler for a few minutes before tossing with crisp cucumbers, mint, lemon, and chewy orzo.”
