Roasted Persimmon with Yogurt & Nuts

This is an easy, delicious and healthy dish that can be served either for breakfast, an afternoon treat or dessert. It’s easy to make, has a lot of wintery flavors and is filled with healthy ingredients. The combination of the warm, tender and sweet persimmon, with the tangy yogurt and the crunchy nuts it amazing. I really love mixing warm and cold ingredients, they make such a nice contrast to a dish.

Have you ever tried persimmon? It’s has a sweet and silk like texture when ripe. I would say it has the same texture as a ripe mango, but the taste is more like a pear and honey. But it still isn’t too sweet for my taste. When eating persimmon make sure you eat a good ripe one. Just as delicious as a ripe persimmon is, a unripe persimmon is nothing you want to indulge in. I like to keep the skin on when baking and eating my persimmon, just because it gives it a nice contrast to the very soft and ripe inside. But if you prefer it without, just peal it before baking. I also prefer roasting my persimmon without olive or coconut oil. Just the taste I prefer. But if you prefer it olive or coconut roasted then just coat it before you put it in the oven.
