Baked Peaches with Chutney Dressing

Not a great picture, but you get the idea of this fruity dessert. This recipe from the “The 15-Minute Gourmet Vegetarian” was really yummy and reminiscent of peach cobbler (according to Jake’s brother’s girlfriend, Jenny). I love chutney and this was really nice, so I recommend that you use ALL of the chutney, not just a bit of it. Technically you don’t have to use the entire recipe. You can just just a couple tablespoons on top…but who wants to live that way? You can serve this with ice cream if you’d like, and maybe a sprinkle of granola if you want that bit of crunch. I really liked this stuff. It was just sweet enough to satisfy that dessert need, but not too sweet to make me regret my life later.
