Lazy Gluten Free: Broiled Grapefruit

Broiled Grapefruit


Since earlier this year, I have been working on incorporating more fruits and veggies into my diet by using Door to Door Organics. I receive a weekly delivery of produce and it's so much fun to come up with new recipes to use what we receive. This recipe was actually inspired by a post that my sister had found on Pinterest.

I had a giant grapefruit sitting on my counter that I knew was getting to the perfect ripeness. My sister, Melanie, happened to see it and suggested I try broiling it. Never having heard of broiling a grapefruit before, I told her to find the recipe and we'd give it a try. I'm glad we did, because we both loved the results.


Normally, I only eat grapefruit occasionally since it's really not one of my favorites. However, after broiling the fruit with some brown sugar, I actually find myself craving it more often! Both my sister and I agreed that this was definitely a perfect way to eat a grapefruit. Not to mention, it looks really pretty too :)
