Use up seasonal plums and other summer fruits in this sweet and sticky compote – it’s delicious with yogurt as a snack and as a low-fat dessert

Ingredients

  • 4 nectarines or peaches, stoned halved or quartered
  • 4-6 plums, stoned halved or quartered
  • 4 figs
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Vanilla pod
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 2tbsp water
  • Greek style honey yogurt

Method

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5.

  • Take an ovenproof dish and place the fruit in the dish so it’s packed tight.

  • Add the cinnamon stick, split the vanilla pod slightly down the middle to release the seeds and flavour.

  • Sprinkle over the caster sugar and water.

  • Roast the fruits in the oven until the fruits are soft, starting to split and you have a delicious sticky sauce formed with the juices.

  • Serve whilst still warm with a good spoonful of honey yogurt.

Use up any leftovers for breakfast. Roasted fruits taste great on porridge or with muesli and yogurt.
