Broiled Grapefruit

Giving up refined sugar transforms a simple broiled grapefruit into ambrosia. I like enhancing my meal with a dash of cinnamon and a brush of Manuka honey – a prebiotic used to treat inflammation. 


Broiled Grapefruit: 

  • 1 grapefruit (conventional is fine given its exterior) 
  • Manuka honey (optional) 
  • Ground cinnamon 
  • Optional toppings: coconut yogurt, dry-roasted pistachios, fresh mint 


Preheat the broiler. Alternatively, preheat the oven to 500 degrees. 

Cut each grapefruit in half and coat the flesh with honey and a dash of cinnamon. Excluding the honey and dry-roasting the fruit will also bring out its smoky mystique. 

Broil for 7 minutes, or roast for 10-12 minutes.
