So I ran across a Sparkpeople recipe, and my first reaction was, “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
But then, being an open-minded guy, I decided to give it a try. The recipe is BAKED GRAPEFRUIT. Did you see it on the Sparkrecipes.com site? This is it:
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons shelled and finely chopped pistachios
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Slice the grapefruit in half.
If your grapefruits are tipping over, use a knife to remove a thin layer from the bottom, taking care not to expose the flesh.
Use a paring knife to separate the grapefruit segments (optional). Run the knife between the inner flesh and the white pith between the flesh and rind.
Place the grapefruit halves on a baking sheet and top with the honey and chopped pistachios.
Bake for 15 minutes. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings, 1/2 grapefruit is one serving.
I didn’t think I was going to like it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was very good. I substituted the honey for agave nectar, but I’m sure the honey would be fine too. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
