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.
