I had a bit of a sweet tooth at lunch today so I tried something new. I roasted a grapefruit to bring out the sweetness and to have something warm for lunch. I am still trying to warm up after my chilly run this morning!

I placed a halfed grapefruit in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes. Then I removed the grapefruit from the oven and added 1/2 tsp of brown sugar to the top and broiled them for 5 minutes ( or less).

Total points:6

The grapefruit got really warm and soft. The brown sugar added to the sweetness. It was yummy.
This would be a good base to add vanilla Greek yogurt onto or ice cream if you’re getting really fancy. A little crumble of granola or some chopped nuts would add some crunchy texture.

This is definitely something I will play around with more.

Stay warm!

What do you like to eat on a chilly day?
