Roasted Figs and Cherries Dessert Recipe
"Summer fruits are always so delicious, but if you roast them in the oven, then they become even more delicious. I also love the colors in this recipe – the deep red from the cherries, the faint red from the figs, and the golden yellow from the peaches. This dish is a really simple way to enjoy these fruits without too much work. Perfect if you’re on a Paleo or AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet. This simple dessert recipe uses 3 different fruits – figs, cherries, and peaches. The figs and cherries are roasted while the raw peaches are diced and served alongside the roasted fruits."
