I just read about a fast breakfast dish that sounds as if it would be good pretty much any time – even as dessert! Put berries or other fruit in the bottom of a ramekin, add sugar or honey if desired, fill with Greek yogurt (higher in protein than regular yogurt), top with sugar and throw under the broiler until the sugar is bruleed. Voila! A hgh protein but tasty and fruity meal.
I think the original recipe is from a Nigel Slater cookbook – Fast Foods?
Hang in there! You’re almost to the reward stage.
Thanks for the tip, Bunnee. My attempt wasn’t perfect, but it was certainly delicious.
I started with defrosted frozen organic blackberries and a tiny bit of wildflower honey.
Then added 2% Fage greek yogurt to the top of the ramekin.
Sprinkled on organic (vegan) sugar. If you are interested in what the heck vegan sugar is… here is a quick explanation of vegan v. regular sugar.
Into my nasty little toaster over as high as it would go – 450 degrees. I didn’t time it. But, it was in there for about 10 minutes. I just kept checking it.
At this point it was starting to brown, but still really runny.
Here it is right out of the oven. The edges started to get black, so I figured that was a cue to take it out of the oven. The middle of the topping, still runny in this picture, hardened up to a caramel texture after a minute.
The best part was the top half, which came out firmer than I expected, kind of like a souffle.
So delicious. Next time I’m thinking about adding some egg and whipping it with the yogurt. I would also mix the honey in better with the fruit and try to drain off all the liquid in attempt to make this less runny. Nevertheless, I ate it before the pictures finished loading on my computer. The baby did a few moonwalks on my ribs shortly thereafter. We likey.
Tomorrow’s menu – Veronica’s lemon, caper and sardine smash with toasted pita. I’m scared, but you shouldn’t be.
