    Broiled grapefruit with honey yogurt and granola 

    What you need:

    • 2 grapefruits
    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 1 pinch of ground ginger
    • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
    • 1 tbsp brown sugar (or raw sugar)
    • 1 pinch of cinnamon
    • 1/4 cup of granola

    Directions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

    2. Using a knife, slice off about 1/4 inch of the base off the grapefruit end and stem end. Then, cut the fruit in half (be careful when doing this and watch those fingers!)

    3. Place the grapefruit halves face up on a baking sheet or shallow baking pan.

    4. Drizzle both grapefruit slices with honey. Dust with ground ginger, cinnamon, brown sugar (and/or sugar in the raw).

    5. Broil for 5-8 minutes, until the sugar turns a deep amber. Keep an eye on during broiling to avoid burning.

     

    6. Let them cool for a few minutes then top it off with yogurt (swirl in honey if you wish) and a handful of granola. 

    7. Using tongs, carefully move each half from pan to bowl for serving.
