We all know roasted veggies are amazing. Roasted green beans, roasted carrots, roasted cabbage, roasted sweet tators, roasted brussels, roasted asparagus. I’ll stop there. But did you know that roasted fruit is just as tasty and amazing?
Joy the Baker recently featured Roasted Winter Citrus.
Warm, salty citrus? Yes, please.
More “mainstream”: roasted apples. Even if you’re not sure you’ll like them, you’re house will smell amazing!
Roasted apples on top of vanilla ice cream, anyone?
I tried my hand at roasting grapes recently. The end result was fantastic!
Nutty brussel sprouts with pops of sweet grapes. Divine, I tell you, divine.
I loosely followed a recipe that I can’t put my finger on the exact one. But here’s what went down in my kitchen:
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Halve or quarter a bag of brussel sprouts and place in a large bowl. Toss in a few cups of red grapes. Drizzle with olive oil and add a few splashes of balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper and some herbs (fresh would be amazing, but I used dried rosemary). Bake until the grapes begin to burst and the brussels look roasted. Drizzle with a bit more balsamic vinegar and serve.
Delish! I also think roasted brussels would be awesome with pears thrown in the mix. Add in some walnuts or pecans to really add nuttiness and play with the herbs you use.
What fruit do you want to try roasting?
Strawberries with balsamic, maybe?
