Baked Grapefruit with Mint2021-10-11
Don’t write off this vibrant, delicious, simple-to-make treat as a “diet” dish! Fragrant and juicy-sweet, this is a great way to use up an abundance of fruit. The mint adds freshness to the flavor, or substitute cinnamon for a more “fall/holiday” taste. You can also use honey or maple syrup in place of the sugar.
¼ c. brown sugar
Fresh mint, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 400° Cut grapefruits in half and discard any large seeds. To loosen sections, cut between flesh and membrane with small paring knife. Place grapefruit halves in a baking dish, cut-side-up. Sprinkle each half with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
- Transfer baking dish to oven and bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 2-3 minutes. Top each half with fresh mint and enjoy.
