Here I go again, shoving more fruit in the oven for a good bake.
Or broil in this case.
The chilly weather has been prompting me to make foods hot hot hot that I would normally enjoy cold.
Because cold food = cold body.
And I am never a fan of having a cold body.
I’ve definitely heard of broiled grapefruit before–we’ll call it caramelized because broiled is not the most glamorous word–but have never put that method to the test until today.
And boy I’m sure glad I did.
I promise, it’s really not weird at all, especially when you add a drizzle of pure maple syrup for sweetness and then sprinkle a bit of ground cinnamon and ginger on there too!
Hello comforting, fresh winter flavors.
Caramelize your fruit until it turns a nice light golden brown then dollop a generous spoonful of creamy coconut milk “yogurt” on top.
Introduce unsweetened toasted coconut flakes to the mix while you’re at it.
This warm, juicy dish is perfect breakfast, snack, or healthy dessert material.
P.S. If you’re not a vegan individual, honey will work just fine in the place of maple syrup.
P.P.S. Regular dairy yogurt (hello Greek!) would be tasty too if you’re a fan of the stuff.
P.P.P.S. Make sure your grapefruit does not catch fire and burn your whole house down. Watch that thing like a hawk. Mine was done after just two minutes but yours might take a wee bit longer if you have a mellower oven. (My oven has a temper, let me tell you.)
P.P.P.P.S. Since we’re on the topic of slightly weird food preparations, try a peanut butter pickle sandwich… two slices of whole grain bread stuffed with sweet, salty peanut butter and dill pickle slices. Whaaa? Yeah it works. And has apparently been a “thing” for many decades.
