Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup flaked almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 cup craisins* (you can use sultanas or dried apricots if you prefer)

Poached peaches

  • 6 medium peaches
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 vanilla pod, split
  • 125ml honey (preferably lavender honey*)
  • 3 sprigs fresh lavender, (plus a few extra to garnish)
  • Thick Greek yoghurt, to serve

Method

  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Step 2
    Spread the coconut on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 5 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking to ensure it browns evenly. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  • Step 3
    Place the honey, butter and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, until the butter has melted and the mixture is well combined.
  • Step 4
    Combine the oats, wheat germ, almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg and sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds in a large bowl. Pour over the butter mixture and toss well to ensure that all the grains are coated. Spread onto the baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp. Transfer to a bowl and toss through the coconut and craisins. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Step 5
    To make the poached peaches, place the peaches in a medium saucepan with the cinnamon, vanilla, honey and lavender. Add enough water to just cover the fruit, then slowly bring to the boil. Decrease heat to low and poach for about 10 minutes until tender (the amount of time will depend on the ripeness of the fruit – test with a skewer to make sure they are cooked through). Transfer the peaches to a dish and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Step 6
    Increase heat to high and reduce the cooking liquid by half (this should take about 5 minutes). Meanwhile, carefully remove the skins from the peaches.
  • Step 7
    Strain the cooking liquid over the fruit and serve with the crunchy granola and a dollop of yoghurt. Garnish with the lavender. (The granola will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Coles Brand Organic White Grain Quinoa
  • 2 to 3 lemons
  • 2 small shallots, very finely chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • 150g fresh baby spinach
  • 2 ripe but firm peaches, pitted, cut into wedges
  • 120g fresh goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup walnuts halves and pieces, toasted

Method

  • Step 1
    In a large heavy saucepan, bring 3 cups of water, the quinoa, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 14 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Transfer the quinoa to a baking tray and cool, then cover and refrigerate until cold.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, into a small bowl, grate 4 teaspoons of lemon peel (yellow part only) and squeeze 6 tablespoons of lemon juice. Whisk in the shallots and 5 tablespoons of the oil. Season the vinaigrette to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Step 3
    Prepare the barbecue for high heat.
  • Step 4
    On a baking tray, toss the asparagus with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Barbecue the asparagus, turning as needed, for 3-4 minutes, or until their green color brightens, char marks form, and the asparagus is still crisp-tender.
  • Step 5
    Arrange the spinach over a large platter. Sprinkle the quinoa over, pulling some of the spinach through. Arrange the grilled asparagus and peaches over. Sprinkle with the goat cheese and walnuts. Drizzle the vinaigrette over and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.

    Use electric beaters to whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until firm peaks form.

  • Step 6
    Spread the cream mixture over the top of the pavlova. Top with the peach slices and drizzle with raspberry sauce. Sprinkle over the fresh raspberries, dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
