Warm salad of Gorgonzola cheese and honey-roasted peaches: Serves four.
YOU WILL NEED
4 large peaches, halved or quartered
150ml/5fl oz runny honey
Juice of ½ lemon
2 fresh thyme sprigs
Mixed lettuce leaves
110g/4oz Gorgonzola cheese,
Melt the butter in a large frying pan until bubbling, add the peaches and mix them around until they are coated in the butter. Cook gently for two minutes until just beginning to soften. Add the honey to the pan together with the lemon juice and the thyme, then bring the mixture to the boil and cook for one to two minutes until the peaches are fully caramelised, which will happen because of the honey reduction.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly for a moment or two. Arrange the lettuce leaves in a large bowl. Top with the crumbled Gorgonzola cheese and neatly arrange the roasted peaches on top.
Drizzle with the thyme-infused honey left in the pan.
