Ginger, Pear and Pistachio Balls Recipe

Makes 18 balls

Ingredients

• 1 cup pitted dates
• 1 cup dried pears
• 1/2 cup raw cashews
• 1/2 cup whole, raw pistachios, plus 1/2 cup coarsely chopped
• 1/2 cup gluten-free quick oats
• 1 Tbsp. cashew butter
• 2 tsp. ground ginger

 

 Directions

In a food processor, combine the dates, pears, cashews, whole pistachios, oats, cashew butter, ginger and 3 tablespoons of water and process on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes, until a thick, sticky mass forms. You may need to add another 2 to 3 tablespoons of water.

Spread the chopped pistachios on a large plate.

Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and, with clean wet hands, roll into a ball between your palms. Roll the ball in the chopped pistachios to lightly coat and then set on a separate plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you have 18 balls.

Place the balls in the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Store in the refrigerator, or at room temperature, until required.

Peaches with Greek Yogurt, Honey and Pistachios Recipe

Serves 6

Ingredients

• 3 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
• 2 Tbsp. butter
• 7 ounces Greek yogurt
• 1/2 tsp. vanilla
• 1 tsp. honey, plus extra for drizzling
• Chopped pistachios for topping

 

 Directions

Heat a griddle pan on medium heat and add butter. Add the peaches face-down and leave to cook for 10 to 15 minutes until nicely browned. If you don't have a griddle pan, you can top each peach with a little butter and broil.

Whip the yogurt with vanilla and 1 teaspoon of honey, and then add a large spoonful onto each peach. Top with chopped pistachios and serve warm.
