In the late fall and winter months, when grapefruit is at peak season, you’ll want to find delicious ways to put it to use. This easy breakfast creates perfect flavour harmony by balancing the tart fruit with creamy-milky ricotta and toasty almonds. The pomegranate seeds are optional, but if you have them on hand, they offer juicy bursts and jewel-like colour.

½ medium, ruby red or pink, cut into segments
