Grilled oranges with pistachios are a healthier dessert than your regular pud, but are so easy to make. You can think of these grilled oranges as a classy twist on a fruit salad. We’ve topped our fruit with pistachios, but toasted hazelnuts would work really well too. To make this dish the best it can be, make sure to buy the best quality oranges and use them while they’re ripe. Grilled oranges would also make the perfect dessert for a summer BBQ as the oranges can be cooked straight on the BBQ – just ensure it’s nice and clean first! The scattering of nuts and rose petals makes this simple dessert so sophisticated, the perfect lighter way to end a dinner party. To make this dessert suitable for vegans you could use a dairy free coconut yoghurt in place of crème fraiche, and maple syrup instead of honey.
