Grilled summer fruit with hazelnuts.

Today, after Sunday dinner, I made a dessert for all the family. I made 'grilled summer fruit with hazelnuts' - it was sweet and very delicious! So fruity and fresh and there were 5 clear plates afterwards! I found this recipe in the magazine, 'Healthy Food Guide', the Summer 2012 issue (page 69). This recipe serves 4 (although I made it serve 5 easily). In the magazine it says it's 142 kcal per serving, if serving it between 4 people.. But I tried working it out as if you were serving it between 5, and I made it to be approx. 89 kcal. So it depends how many people you're serving it to, depends on the calories! The magazine's really good - I'm definitely buying the next issue! It's packed full of recipes, articles and advice! It also lets you know each recipes' nutritional information.. It says that this recipe is low-kcal, low-fat, low-saturates, low-salt, vegetarian friendly, gluten-free and two of your 5-a-day! :)

 Here's the recipe, if you want to give it a go:

- cooking oil spray
- 4 peaches, stoned and quartered
- 250g strawberries, halved, or quartered if large
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 20g toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp mint leaves, finely chopped
- 150g low-fat vanilla yoghurt to serve

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Spray a medium ovenproof dish with a little oil and put the peaches and strawberries in the dish. Drizzle the fruit with the vanilla extract and sprinkle with the sugar.
2. Put the dish under the grill for 5-8 min until the fruit colours and the syrup is bubbling.
3. Sprinkle the hazelnuts and mint leaves over the top and serve with the yoghurt.
