As I mentioned yesterday, I am aiming for a healthy couple of days coming off of a not so healthy weekend. Yesterday was just that…. success! My planning ahead definitely helped and I enjoyed delicious homemade food all day long.
In walked this idea. I honestly wish I had a grill, but I live in a shoebox in NY and very few of us have grills. This would have probably been even better had I grilled the grapefruit, but sautéing also produces a delicious result.
Here, I simply cut up a grapefruit into bite sized chunks, tossed it in a packet of Truvia that I had hanging around (I don’t really use fake sugar but had this packet lying around from a while ago and it was the only sugar I had on hand).
Sautéed it in a pan for about 2-3 minutes until the grapefruit was hot. When you cook it, it makes it even sweeter!
I then topped it with a dollop of ricotta, a few mini morsels and a drizzle of honey.
Simple, summery perfection. This will definitely be repeated. The ricotta was so rich and creamy on top of a super sweet, light summer fruit. Of course a few mini chocolate morsels can’t hurt, and they melted all over the hot grapefruit and ricotta. Mmmm…..
Sautéed (or grilled) Grapefruit with Ricotta:
- 1 grapefruit, peeled and sliced into chunks
- about 1/4 cup ricotta cheese or a little less
- 1 T mini chocolate chips
- 2 t sugar
- 1 t honey
1. Toss grapefruit chunks in sugar
2. Place grapefruit into a heated pan, sauté for 2-3 minutes until hot.
3. Top with remaining ingredients. Let the chocolate melt. Enjoy! 🙂
