Roasted Miso Glazed Peaches with Ginger Whipped Cream
In this dessert fresh peaches are roasted to heighten their natural sweetness and brushed with miso for a dose of umami. Top with ginger whipped cream for a bit of spice. Serves 4 to 6 depending on portions.

5fresh ripe peachespitted and halved, skin on
For the miso glaze
1tablespoonlow-sodium soy sauce
For the whipped cream
1tablespoonground ginger root
Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make the miso glaze
Add miso, mirin, lemon juice and soy sauce to a small mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
Slice each peach half into thirds.
Spread peach slices out on the parchment lined baking sheet.
Using a silicone brush, brush miso glaze onto the meaty topside of each peach slice.
Roast for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven, turn peach slices over and brush glaze onto the other side.
Roast for 5 more minutes.
Make the whipped cream
Beat heavy cream (I use a hand mixer) in a chilled mixing bowl until it forms soft peaks (about 3 minutes.)
Add ginger and powdered sugar.
Beat until stiff peaks form (about 2 to 3 minutes.)
Refrigerate until serving.
Best served warm so the whipped cream melts a bit and mingles with the peach juices.
