Grilled Grapefruit with Cardamon Clove & Ginger

I'm crediting my lovely friend Kyle's mother for this recipe!! Apparently grilled grapefruit was a very sixties thing ... well it ought to make a swift return! So much tastier and less sherbety-toe-curling than eating it raw, plus it's easier to peel from it's skin. The perfect breakfast fruit.

Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, grapefruit can provide an array of anti-ageing benefits like evening skin tone and fighting off free radicals. When eaten, it provides the body with important nutrients, essential for healthy skin.

INGREDIENTS (per serving)

1 pink grapefruit

Pinch of ground cardamon

Pinch of ginger

Pinch of cloves

Drizzle of maple syrup

3 tbsp coconut yoghurt


Slice the grapefruit in half - note .. you have to slice it horizontally to ensure you get the segments the correct way up! So, don't slice down the centre vertically like you would an apple, slice it straight across through the middle

Use a knife to carefully dig in around the edge of each half to loosen the grapefruit flesh from the skin (this helps when you're eating it!) 

Drizzle both halves in maple syrup and sprinkle the spices on top

Place under a hot grill (flesh side up) and grill for 5 to 10 minutes

If you'd like more of a browned look on top, I used a hot pan and placed the grapefruit flesh down to create that lovely caramel look. It only needs a minute or so

Serve warm with coconut yoghurt
