I love this recipe! Everything about it says SUMMER – fresh, juicy peaches, barely singed on the grill, and a zesty aioli made with a generous handful of fresh chopped basil.

The secret…

Here’s the thing about this recipe: the secret is in the aioli. Once you taste it, you are going to want to put it on everything. It will be delicious on your burger. You might want to “accidentally” drip some on your grilled chicken. Or you might be posh and use a piece of your filet mignon steak to clean the stuff off your plate. Heck, dip your Garlic Rosemary Taro Fries in it! Whatever you are grilling, this will be lovely with it. (I also have it on good authority that it really dresses up scrambled eggs, if you eat them.)

A tip…

My tip: use just a little aioli on the peaches because it may overpower them if you use too much. Save it to put on the rest of your meal. 🙂

Equipment

You won’t need any special equipment, though I find it really helpful to use a mini food processor, which, if you’ve been a friend of this blog for any amount of time, you know that I use all the time. In a pinch, you could also use a regular old blender. (<-I use this one. It’s not fancy, but it is a work horse!)

Don’t forget dessert!

After dinner, treat yourself to some Blackberry Peach Galette. Because peaches. And summer.

My dearest wish for you in these really weird times is that you are able to find things that bring you JOY. Even if it’s aioli.

Great love and deep healing to you!

Grilled Peaches with Basil Aioli is the perfect side dish for summer grilling. Save some of the aioli to top whatever meat you are grilling!

Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted

  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • Juice of one lemon (about 2 T.)

  • 2 TBSP water

  • 4 small peaches, halved, pitted, and peeled

  • Avocado or extra virgin olive oil for brushing

Directions

  • Preheat grill to 450 degrees F.
  • Place garlic, avocado, olive oil, basil salt, lemon juice, and water in a mini food processor or blender. Process until the aioli is very smooth. If it is too thick add more water. Set aside.
  • Brush the flat side of each peach half with avocado oil. Carefully place peaches flat side down on the grill. Cook for only 1-2 minutes, just long enough for them them to get grill marks, and to warm through.
  • Serve with a drizzle of aioli. (Not too much, or it will overpower the peaches.) Serve the rest of the aioli at table for adding to grilled meats, etc.
