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.

    This looks wonderful… but I have to admit, I am really chuckling about this again after our discussion about how much Josh *loves* making that greek yogurt for you! He is quite a keeper Maria! It was SO good seeing you both today!

    This is a fabulous idea -roasted strawberries would be great with rosemary added to the mix. I am always looking for sides for my pork dishes. Rosemary roasted strawberries would be perfect.

    Maria,
    what a wonderful addition to desserts or just with the yogurt! I am addicted to Greek yogurt as well, but quite past the pregnancy stage.
    I’m glad I found your site.
    Best wishes with the pregnancy and the baby!

    So, Maria & Josh, I know this is a post of a recipe, not a review of yogurt makers, but that’s what I need and I trust your opinion.

    I am thinking about buying a yogurt maker that has one large container rather than several individual-portion containers. Do you have any advice? Is there a reason why most people buy the latter rather than the former?

    Thanks!

    • Two Peas replied: — August 24th, 2011 @ 11:04 am

      We like our yogurt maker with the individual jars because I eat a serving a day. I like that the yogurt is already portioned out. We have the Euro Cuisine yogurt maker and love it: http://bit.ly/fQd2di. If you don’t care about individual servings, I am sure a quart yogurt maker would work well too!
