Broiled grapefruit

Broiled grapefruit


  • ½ grapefruit (I like Ruby Red variety, but any will work!)

Topping: a few slices of strawberries or banana,
or a handful or blueberries/raspberries
½ cup of natural yogurt (preferable Greek for higher protein content) sprinkle of cinnamon or ground ginger tablespoon of nuts—pecan or walnut pieces are best
optional: a drizzle of honey


Wash the grapefruit and slice it in half (down the middle, not the axis). With a knife, slightly separate the pulp from the peel inside the grapefruit halve, and gently separate the sections from one another. Top with fruit slices, sprinkle with cinnamon or ginger, place the grapefruit half on a baking tray/foil, and put it in the oven under the broiler for 5 minutes. Plate the grapefruit next to ½ cup of plain yogurt, topped with a sprinkle of nut pieces. Eat with a spoon.
