Almost-Instant Peach Crisp

I still had a few peaches left from Friday's farm market trip and they were all I could think about eating for lunch on Sunday.  I recently saw a recipe for a 2-ingredient microwave peach crisp that uses peaches and granola.  Instead of granola, however, I used old-fashioned oats and then topped it with vanilla soy yogurt.  (There's so much sugar in the yogurt that it was sweet enough with plain oats.)  The microwaving warms them a bit and gives the peaches a perfect texture - slightly soft and juicy but not mushy. 

This is so quick, healthy, and delicious - perfect for a lite breakfast, lunch, or snack.  For dessert, top it with vegan whipped cream - homemade or store-bought - or non-dairy vanilla ice cream instead of yogurt.  

Microwave Peach Crisp


2 fresh peaches, unpeeled and sliced
3 tbsp. old-fashioned oats
6 oz. vanilla soy yogurt

1. Sprinkle 2 tbsp. oats in the bottom of a microwave-safe dish.

2. Lay peach slices over the oats in a single layer.  Sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp. oats.

3. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on full power for 1 minute. 

4. Remove plastic wrap.  Top with soy yogurt.

Makes 1 serving.

Tonight is a special evening Dearborn Farmer's Market from 5-8 p.m.  Brian and I will make a quick stop to see which vendors are there.  My fingers are crossed for Kapnick Orchard and their fabulous peaches!

What's your favorite way to eat fresh peaches?
