1 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt (250 mL)
3/4 tsp ground cardamom or cinnamon (4 mL)
1 Tbsp canola oil (15 mL)
12 Medjool dates, pitted (1)
1/4 cup chopped pistachios (optional) (60 mL)
- In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt and cardamom. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
- In a small nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add dates and panfry for about 2 minutes, turning to blister dates (become golden) and heat through.
- Divide yogurt among 6 dessert plates and top each with 2 dates. Sprinkle with pistachios to serve.
Tip: Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.
Pan-Fried Dates with Cardamom Yogurt
A simple ending to a wonderful meal. The crunch and colour of the pistachios make it extra special. The yogurt can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator.
