Peaches seem exotic and rare because they disappear from the market before plums, their stone fruit cousins. Light grilling keeps their pleasing shape intact, and the fruit’s natural sweetness is accentuated by the fat and sourness of the goat cheese. If you don’t have a grill, sear the peaches in a pan, following the same instructions for grilling. For a sweeter take on this recipe, reduce the salt and pepper and, after topping the peaches with the goat cheese, drizzle them with honey and garnish with a few mint leaves.
