Simplest Roasted Strawberries


Ever make a recipe and wonder why you haven’t been making this for years? For me, that’s this one. I made this last week and immediately was blown away. Roasting concentrates flavor and balsamic adds a touch of complexity.

Since then, I obsessively tried roasting at different temps and times to find the perfect match. While you can’t really go wrong, I found a low and slow heat worked best to keep the strawberries just a bit plump and not release water too quickly.

I made this with a vanilla buttermilk panna cotta- a recipe I need to test one more time to finalize- and one thing is clear: a creamy, luxurious, and rich dessert pairs perfectly with these strawberries. A quicker option? Skyr, yogurt or ice cream.

Simple Roasted Strawberries

Servings 0.5 cup
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 35 mins
  • 1 pound strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch kosher salt
  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Toss strawberries in honey, balsamic, and olive oil. Spread onto baking sheet. Bake until they are quite soft and a bilted and the juice they have released has become syrupy, about 30-40 minutes (the time here is very generous- you really can't go wrong).
  • Store in airtight container in fridge. Good for at least a few days (tbh mine have never lasted longer).

    This was really easy to make. It’s great for when you need a simple dessert and are short on time, but it will still be something different and delicious. plus you can use them in a ton of different ways so it never gets old!
