Grilled Grapefruit

*This is part of my Bourne living series, which promotes healthy ways to eat while pregnant!*



Grapefruit is a great year-round treat — it’s tart, sweet, and refreshing in the summer, and offers a bright and much-needed shot of vitamin C in the winter months, during cold season. My version of grilled grapefruit combines smoky, tangy sumac with a hint of heat from chili powder, and caramelized brown sugar that feels decadent while still staying healthy.



1 whole grapefruit, halved

3 tsp brown sugar

1/4 tsp sumac

1/4 tsp chili powder

drizzle of honey

maldon salt, to garnish








Combine brown sugar, sumac, and chili powder in a small bowl.

Top each grapefruit half with half of the sugar mixture. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 2-3 minutes, until sugar is caramelized.

Drizzle with honey and garnish with maldon or other sea salt.
