Sweet & Spicy Broiled Grapefruit with Coconut Cream
Ingredients for Grapefruit
- 3 red or pink grapefruit
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon, vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 12 mint leaves, 2 leaves per grapefruit
- 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
Preheat oven to broiler setting.
Cut each grapefruit in half, horizontally across the middle. On the bottom of each grapefruit, slice off a little layer of the skin to allow it to sit stably. Lastly, cut along each section of the grapefruit to loosen the segments. Remove as many seeds as possible.
In a mixing bowl, add the maple syrup, vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. Whisk until all the ingredients are blended. Brush each grapefruit with a generous coating of the mixture. (Optional) Sprinkle the grapefruits with more of the spices before adding to the broiler. Broil for 4 to 8 minutes, or until bubbly. Garnish with a dollop of coconut cream, pomegranate seeds, and fresh mint leaves. Best served warm. Enjoy!
