How To Roast Strawberries
Roasting strawberries is SO easy – just a couple steps to prep + 30 minutes in the oven!
To start, preheat your oven to 350F.
Next, wash and remove the green stems from your strawberries. Pat the strawberries dry, and cut them in half (or in quarters if larger).
Place the baking sheet in the oven and let the strawberries roast for about 25-30 minutes. They will start to release a bit of their liquids and appear a little less plump (although still super juicy).
Remove the honey-roasted strawberries from the oven, and allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving!
*Note: if you’re vegan and/or don’t eat honey, feel free to swap with maple syrup or another sweetener instead.
What To Serve With Roasted Strawberries
These honey-roasted strawberries can be enjoyed in SO many ways. Some ideas:
- Stir them into a Greek yogurt bowl and top with granola
- Drizzle them over an oatmeal bowl or over waffles/pancakes
- Use them to top chia pudding or overnight oats
- Spread them over a piece of peanut butter toast, in place of jam
- Serve them with vanilla or chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, or cake for dessert
How To Store Roasted Strawberries
Roasted strawberries can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze roasted strawberries, since they’re already a bit softer and more liquid than their raw counterparts.
Strawberry Nutrition Facts
Strawberries are one of my favourite, nutrient-dense fruits!
Did you know that 1 cup of strawberries provides 140% of your daily vitamin C needs? It’s one of the best sources of vitamin C out there, playing a key role in keeping our skin healthy and preventing cell damage (it’s an antioxidant).
Like other berries, strawberries are also a great source of good-for-the-gut dietary fibre; 1 cup provides 3 grams.
Strawberries also contain a small amount of potassium, vitamin B6, folate, phosphorus, and magnesium.
