When strawberries are roasted, they turn into a sweet, syrupy treat that can be used as a topping for cereals and yogurt. This recipe layers the berries with cinnamon honey yogurt. By flavoring plain yogurt at home, you can control the added sugar. Enjoy this parfait as a filling breakfast or afternoon snack.
Yield: 2 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 7 minutes
- 1 pint strawberries, stemmed and cut in half
- 2 (5.3 oz.) containers non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp honey
- ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the strawberries in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, and stir at least once while roasting. The larger your berries, the longer they will need to bake. They are ready when they begin to soften and a syrup is visible on the bottom of the baking sheet. Let cool.
In a medium bowl, stir together the yogurt, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Separate the yogurt and the strawberries into two portions.
In each of two serving bowls, layer a portion of the yogurt and strawberries with their natural syrup. Top each with 1 tablespoon of walnuts before serving.
