Peaches and 'Yogurt' with Sugared Almonds

This easy dish would be perfect at either end of the day -either as a protein-packed start to your morning as breakfast, or a sweet cap to your day for dessert.

Whisk together 3/4 tsp. Ener-G egg replacer powder with 1 tablespoon warm water. Add 1/4 cup sliced almonds and 1/4 cup raw sugar, stirring to combine, then spread the mixture in an even layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through; transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Meanwhile, combine 2 tablespoons raw sugar, 2 tablespoons water and 1/2 tsp. lemon rind in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then continue to cook for 1 minute.

Transfer to a bowl, and add 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract. Add 2 cups peeled and sliced peaches (about 2 peaches), tossing to combine. Let stand 5 minutes, then drain the excess liquid; set the peaches aside.

In another bowl, stir together 1 cup vanilla soy yogurt (such as Silk or Whole Soy), and 1 tablespoon agave nectar in place of honey.

Spoon 1/2 cup of the soy yogurt mixture into each of two bowls. Top each serving with 1 cup of the peaches and about 3 tablespoons of the almonds. Each serving is 400 calories; although the amounts above make enough to serve 2, you can double all the quantities easily.

Note: make sure you buy sliced almonds, not slivered - otherwise the topping won't be quite right! Here's a closer look at the topping, which was to die for!

sliced almonds $1.80
lemon $0.69
peaches $4.26
vanilla soy yogurt $2.18
