Grapefruit is available year-round, but reaches peak season starting around Christmas, thru April. This zesty citrus has really climbed to the top of my list of favorite fruits. I love them in Palomas, summer salads, or as a simple breakfast or snack. This week's recipe is a really delicious way to enjoy this beautiful citrus - sprinkling a mixture of brown sugar, ground ginger, cinnamon, and salt over top halved grapefruits, and putting them under the broiler for 3-5 minutes to achieve golden, caramelized perfection. The sugary topping adds some warmth and spice to this tart fruit. Snack on the broiled grapefruit alone, or with greek yogurt swirled with a drizzle of honey. I love adding Nature's Path Flax Plus Pumpkin Flax Granola on top for some texture :) Watch the video below to find out how! 

Ingredients You Need:

  • 1 large ruby grapefruit
  • 2-3 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger 
  • dash cinnamon
  • dash salt
  • optional: fresh mint, yogurt, honey, granola, hemp, chia

Method:

  • Slice the grapefruit in half. Loosen the grapefruit flesh in each half first by carefully cutting between the fruit and the peel. Then cut along each side of each segment to free it from the membrane. 
  • In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, ground ginger, cinnamon, and salt together. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of each grapefruit half. Put them on a baking sheet and under the broiler for 3-5 minutes. 
  • Garnish with mint, honeyed yogurt, and/or granola, and serve immediately :)
