Broiled Grapefruit

Yes - broiled grapefruit!  Delicious with breakfast, brunch or alongside fish or chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit
  • cinnamon
  • cane sugar, coconut sugar, or honey (see NOTE)  if desired 

Intructions:     Slice grapefruit in half.  Use a small knife to separate each section from the membrane and remove any seeds. Sprinkle with cinnamon and your choice of sugar or a drizzle of honey (see NOTE), if desired.             

Put on a broiler pan or baking sheet and place under the broiler for 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned and juice begins to bubble. Watch closely to ensure they don't burn. Remove and serve.  

NOTE:  I recommend raw organic honey, as it is pure, unheated, unpasteurized and unprocessed, which preserves the nutrients - including natural vitamins, enzymes and phytonutrients  As such, I suggest adding the honey after broiling to maintain the nutritional value.
