Poached nectarines (Yummy breakfast recipe)


Poached nectarine
Poached nectraine


One of our close friend visited our home with red wine for a get together party. After that party, there is so much red wine left. In many cookery shows, people make so many continental dishes using red wine. I always wanted to try and taste those dishes. Now I have red wine at home but don't know what and how to make. Searched for so many recipes using red wine but couldn't come to a conclusion. Thanks to food network channel, from where I got this wonderful, simple, yummy and quick breakfast recipe "Poached Nectarine". And yeah, you can also serve this as a fruit dessert.

Nectarines are similar to peaches but have a smooth skin. Eating nectarine is a healthy way to include many vitamins and minerals in your diet. Calories in nectarine is very less, 1 nectarine contains 50 calories approximately. Poaching nectarine in red wine syrup makes it super soft and it melts in your mouth when you have it with yogurt. Aside from the enchantingly robust flavor and spicyness of cinnamon, you can also feel the tangy hint of orange rind in this recipe.

You can serve this poached nectarine with plain or flavored yogurt of your choice, crepe , ice cream, pancakes, waffles or a tart. Its absolutely your choice to pick the right one that suits your taste bud.

Fruit and yogurt are always hit combinations and hence we had with plain yogurt with walnut, pecan toppings. Try out this yummy breakfast recipe and share your comments in the comment section below.
