Roasted Strawberries with Greek Yogurt

Roasted Strawberries with Greek Yogurt

Two of my staples during pregnancy have been berries and Greek yogurt. When nothing else sounds good, I turn to them. They have been my lifesaver. To jazz things up a little bit, I made Roasted Strawberries with Greek Yogurt this week. Roasting the strawberries turned my normal snack into a snack fit for a queen.

I cut the strawberries in half tossed them with agave nectar and a little turbinado sugar. I placed them on a baking sheet and roasted them in the oven for about 30 minutes. While the strawberries were roasting I went back to bed to rest. I love how little work is involved for this delicious recipe:) I took the strawberries out when they were soft and the juices were bubbling. I let them cool to room temperature before adding them to my yogurt.

I spooned plain Greek yogurt into a fancy little dish and added the roasted strawberries on top. The strawberries were sweet, juicy, and the perfect topping for my yogurt. If you are looking for an easy way to spice up your Greek yogurt, try roasted strawberries. You can also use roasted strawberries as a topping for  ice cream, pudding, cheesecake, crepes or even mix them in a salad. Get creative and enjoy roasted strawberries. They are delightful.

Roasted Strawberries with Greek Yogurt

Yield: Serves 1

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup strawberries, washed, hulled, and cut in half
2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey
1/2 teaspoon turbinado sugar
1 (6 oz. serving) Greek yogurt (I used Chobani plain 0% yogurt)

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

2. In a small bowl, toss strawberries, agave nectar, and turbinado sugar together. Make sure the strawberries are coated evenly.

3. Place strawberries on prepared baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes or until strawberries are soft and juicy.

4. Let the strawberries cool to room temperature. Spoon strawberries over Greek yogurt.

    How fun! I’ve never roasted strawberries. And you know Greek yogurt is totally a staple for me too! I don’t know how I’d hit all my protein without it ;)

    Love this, Maria. It’s so cool how the flavor of the strawberries gets deeper from the roasting and gives you a completely different experience.

    I’ve been getting strawberries every week in my CSA box – I can’t wait to try this!

    delicious – and nutricious – have you tried steaming them over a water bath – makes amazing consommé

    Jeanette — April 15, 2011 @ 11:13 am

    What a neat idea – I would never think to roast strawberries. I agree that a splash of balsamic vinegar would probably go nicely with these!

    So do with the roasting are they dried out? or more chewy? or just sweeter and condensed flavor?

      The strawberries are juicy, sweet, and bursting with flavor!

    I never would have thought to roast the berries. I lived on plain chobani and berries in my third pregnancy…it was a great snack when I had gestational diabetes!

    What a yummy, healthy snack! I would have never come up with roasting a fruit on my own. Thanks for sharing these and inspiring me. I hope you have a great weekend!

    It sounds like it would be delicious and comforting!

    It also sounds like a great way to get more life out of some berries that have been in the fridge a few days that are not looking perfect but are not spoiled yet either. I made your strawberry cake with the berries I had like that last week and will be trying this tonight with some berries I have in my fridge right now!
