Oh honeydew – you are a wonderful fruit.
But you are simply not meant to be grilled.
I’ve had a honeydew sitting in my fridge for the last week, but I couldn’t decide what to do with it – eating it plain just seemed boring. This morning, I was struck by the idea that maybe I could grill a honeydew. Wouldn’t it kind of taste like grilled pineapple?
Unfortunately – you cannot grilled honeydew. Trust me. It ends up being a mass of grilled mush. More like grilling a watermelon than a pineapple.
After slicing the honeydew, I rubbed it in maple syrup and cinnamon and popped it on my George Foreman for a few minutes. Then I combined it with Vegan Overnight Oats (2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1/3 cup oatmeal, 3/4 cup almond milk). But it was a soupy disaster.
I get shivers just looking at that hot mess. 🙂
I ate the VOO, picking around the grilled honeydew, and then ate a few slices of (fresh) melon from the fridge. Some things are best served plain.
What kitchen disasters have you had recently?
At least you’re honest and didn’t try to pass it over as a great dish :). When you bake and cook as much as I do, there are many disasters in the kitchen. Live and learn.
Hope the marathon training is going well? But first, your Sub 23:00 in the 5K… you’ll do it in a snap.
