Ingredients

  • 1 bag Success® Basmati Rice
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 fresh peaches
  • 1/4 lb sliced prosciutto, chopped
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • small, fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  • There’s nothing like peach season to inspire some sweet, summer recipes! If you’re like us, you know that one of the best ways to celebrate this time of year is by firing up the grill and caramelizing those tasty, farm-fresh peaches. Try it today with this Grilled Peach and Prosciutto Rice Pilaf.

    Step 1

  • Preheat grill to medium heat, or a grill pan over medium.

    Step 2

  • Prepare rice according to package directions, using stock instead of water. Place the hot, cooked rice into a medium bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, shallot, vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

    Step 3

  • Slice peaches in half and remove pits. Drizzle remaining olive oil over peaches and grill on both sides until slightly golden and caramelized (about 5 minutes depending on grill temperature).

    Step 4

  • Allow peaches to cool slightly and dice into 1/2-inch pieces. Add peaches, prosciutto, and pine nuts to rice mixture and gently toss together. Serve warm or chilled, garnished with fresh basil leaves.

More Than Peachy Keen

Try this Grilled Peach and Prosciutto Rice Pilaf and enjoy the irresistible combination of salty, thin-sliced Italian ham, with sweet, grilled peach slices and aromatic Success® Basmati Rice.

Besides this incredible combination, this recipe gets even more depth by cooking your rice in vegetable or chicken broth. On top of that, the whole dish gets flavor from olive oil, shallot, Dijon mustard, salt, black pepper and balsamic vinegar. Fresh basil and pine nuts provide extra crunch and herb-forward flavors typical of authentic rice pilaf.

Firm or Fully-Ripe?

For best results, we recommend you use ripe but slightly firm, fresh peaches for this dish. This way, your peaches won’t break apart on the grill.
