Coriander Roasted Strawberries

Ever brought a pint of strawberries home from the store and been less than satisfied with their taste? They look red and juicy, but don’t actually follow through. That’s exactly what happened not to long ago for us. We don’t usually buy berries before summer, but they looked so good! We came home, opened the box, took a bite … annnnd nothin’.

Not wanting to waste the little guys, we decided to roast them. Ever roasted fruit? If not, you need to start!

Why Roast Strawberries?

Flavor! When you roast, something awesome happens. All roasting does is extract natural sweetness from whatever you throw into the oven. We did it with tomatoes not too long ago for our Cardamom Roasted Tomato Pasta and they were a huge hit!

We ended up roasting the strawberries with a sprinkle of brown sugar and ground coriander. The sugar helped with bringing out the sweetness of the berries, while the coriander gave an unusual, but welcomed earthiness.

How to Serve Roasted Strawberries

Can we say softly whipped and sweetened cream. Or, even better … ICE cream! Definitely try them warm, they’re delish! Oh, and by the way… you could totally use cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom or just plain sugar for this instead of the coriander, it’s totally up to you!

    Hi Joanne
    I just joined Weight Watchers and would like to count my points, can you please put the points on your recipes?
    I really appreciate your help.

      Hi there, At the moment, we are not able to provide Weight Watchers points (it’s just the two of us and that would take a lot of our time). For now, try this website – it might help you figure out what you need to know.

    What a great idea. I know just what you mean about disappointing fruit.

    i love roasted berries but never think of making them myself at home – when i have them in the house, i just eat them as is 🙂 i’ll have to do this soon!

    Looks delicious and a great way to not waste food!

    I do this, but I definitely toss the fruit, sugar and spice in a bowl rather than on the baking sheet and I find that a silpat works well. I hadn’t thought of coriander. We have done sugar and nutmeg or sugar and cinnamon before so thanks for the idea.
