Welcome to Heart Healthy Recipes' Newsletter!

This month’s Heart Healthy Recipes' newsletter features summer grilling recipes. Included on the menu are grilled peaches topped with fresh blueberries, grilled avocados, and also grilled sweet potatoes.

Grilled Peaches with Blueberries

Summer grilling dessert of heart-healthy, in-season, grilled peaches topped with fresh, antioxidant-rich blueberries.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 medium ripe peaches, halved and pitted

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup fresh blueberries

2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

Mint for garnish (optional)

Recipe Instructions:

Heat grill to medium-high heat (400°F to 425°F). Next, cut each peach in half and remove pit, set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix honey, cinnamon and lemon juice until well combined, then gently add in blueberries.

Next, brush each peach with grapeseed oil on the cut-side. Then, place on heated grill cut-side down, grilling until slightly softened and charred, approximately one minute. Press gently with a spatula to achieve grill marks. Flip to other side and grill an additional minute. When finished grilling, remove peaches from grill and serve on individual plates.

Top with blueberry mixer and add mint garnish, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.

Grilled Avocados

Avocados provide many benefits for the heart, including being high in fiber and helping to lower cholesterol. Avocados are also rich in potassium and folate, which may help lower blood pressure.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 avocados, slightly unripe

1 tablespoon lime juice

1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

sea salt, to taste (optional)

Recipe Instructions:

Heat grill to medium-high heat (400°F to 425°F). Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Cover the fleshy part of the avocado immediately with lime juice.

Brush each avocado with a small amount of grapeseed oil onto the surface of each avocado and sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.

Place avocados cut-side down on oiled grill grates. Leave grill lid open for about 5 minutes until the avocado becomes slightly tender when gently squeezed with tongs.

Remove from the grill, adding favorite toppings, such as paprika, cayenne pepper and/or freshly chopped tomatoes, onions, lime juice and more.

Makes 4 servings.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Grilled side-dish of antioxidant-rich sweet potatoes add to almost any meal and are also heart-healthy.

Recipe Ingredients:

3-4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into ¼-inch slices

1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

½ teaspoon garlic

½ teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon black pepper

2-3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

1 medium lime (optional)

Recipe Instructions:

Heat the grill to medium heat (300°F to 400°F). Peel sweet potatoes and cut into ¼-inch thick slices. In a large bowl, place the sweet potato slices, along with grapeseed oil.

In a small bowl, combine garlic, cumin, chili powder, black pepper. Add this spice mixture to the sweet potatoes and toss to coat.

Arrange the sweet potato slices on an oiled grill, grilling for approximately 5 minutes on each side. Remove grilled potatoes to four individual plates and top with freshly chopped basil and squeezes of lime, if desired.
