    Tip

    If you’re following a dairy-free diet, you could replace the ricotta cream with cashew cream.

    Firm hand

    For an out-of-hand snack, stone fruit should be deliciously juicy. But for grilling, it’s best to select fruit that are still slightly under-ripe so they hold together better over the fire.

    Directions

    01

    Halve stone fruits, remove pits, and brush cut sides with grapeseed oil. Preheat grill to medium, and grease grill grate. Place stone fruit on grill and heat until tender and grill marks appear, about 4 minutes. Remove from grill and, when cool enough to handle, slice stone fruit into wedges.

    02

    In heavy dry skillet over medium heat, toast buckwheat, shaking pan often, until darkened and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn the groats. Remove buckwheat from pan and add pistachios to skillet. Toast until they begin to darken, shaking pan often, about 3 minutes. Coarsely chop.

    03

    In small bowl, blend together ricotta cheese, cream, honey, lemon zest, ginger, and a pinch of salt until smooth.

    04

    To serve, spread ricotta cream on serving platter and top with grilled stone fruit wedges. Scatter on toasted buckwheat groats, pistachios, and mint. Squirt on some fresh lemon juice.
