Savory Stuffed Peaches with Couscous and Feta

Savory Stuffed Peaches with Couscous and Feta

Serves 8
This light and satisfying vegetarian dish is perfect during summer when peaches are at their peak. Fluffy couscous and moist, slightly pungent feta cheese complement the tender sweetness of grilled peach halves. Makes a beautiful lunch or simple supper dish when served on a bed of baby salad greens.

Boil water in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat, stir in salt, oregano or basil and couscous. Cover immediately and let sit undisturbed for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush peaches with balsamic vinegar and grill or broil 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove to platter or individual serving plates.

Toss crumbled cheese and one tablespoon of minced chives into couscous, then spoon into grilled peach halves, mounding couscous. (If desired, first scoop out a little peach flesh to make more room for couscous stuffing.)

If peaches were broiled, drizzle any remaining pan juices over the couscous. Sprinkle lightly with remaining chives and paprika.
