Nothing fancy here, but it’s too good to not share…
I’ve always been a huge grapefruit fan. But never in my life did I think I’d crave a grapefruit warm.
That all changed last week.
I’ve been really into grilling fruits the last few years- maybe you’ve seen my grilled peaches, grilled figs, grilled apricot, and grilled blueberry endeavors. I sometimes even grill lemons and limes for salsas and guac… but what I’d never done was a grill a grapefruit.
With the weather grey and a hankering to try, I decided I’d give some broiled grapefruit a try instead… there has been no grilling around these parts for quite some time (whoa torrential rains). A quick glance online revealed this was no new idea… turns out others like cooked grapefruit too- with good reason! It’s surprisingly delicious. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on that bad boy and you’ve got yourself a mighty tasty breakfast or dessert. Cinnamon makes everything in life better. ♥
Why I love it:
1- It takes a naturally delicious fruit and turns it into a decadent feeling treat.
2- The sugars caramelize over the top… need I say more?
3- It’s so comforting with the warm cinnamon vibes, yet light and summery still.
4- I get to use my grapefruit spoon, which I’ll take any excuse to bust out.
5- It take five minutes. Have a simple breakfast treat or spruce it up with a little ice cream and mint leaf for a fancy-feeling and impressionable dessert in an easy jiffy.
6- It’s pretty… and pretty food makes me smile. 😉
1 tsp coconut sugar (1/2 tsp per half)
Slice grapefruit in half and prep it as you usually would…
I typically give it a good slice around the edge, then a quick cut along each wedge
Tip: if they’re wobbly guys, give the bottoms a teeny trim to create a stable standing base
Sprinkle each grapefruit half with 1/2 tsp coconut sugar (or other sugar you like- I use this one)
Totally optional, but highly recommend- sprinkle each half with a little ground cinnamon…
adds the perfect happy oomph to the final product!
Lay grapefruit halves on a baking sheet
Broil for approx 5 minutes, until golden brown around the edges
Dig in, devour, and enjoy!!
