Ingredients

plain fat free Greek yogurt

¼ cup(s)

crystallized ginger

1 Tbsp, minced (candied ginger)

pineapple

1 medium, peeled, cored, cut into 12 rounds

unpacked light brown sugar

1½ Tbsp

ground allspice

½ tsp

mint leaves

4 piece(s), large sprigs (optional)

Instructions

  1. Set oven rack about 5 inches from broiler; preheat broiler.
  2. Place yogurt in a small bowl and stir in ginger; set aside.
  3. Place 3 slices pineapple in each of 4 small (10-inch) oval gratin dishes, overlapping them slightly; sprinkle with brown sugar and allspice. Broil pineapple until bubbling and lightly caramelized, about 8 minutes (check once or twice to make sure pineapple isn’t getting too dark).
  4. Remove pineapple from oven; top each dish with 1 rounded tablespoon yogurt. Garnish with mint (if using) and serve warm.
  5. Serving size: 3 slices pineapple with 1 tablespoon topping

Notes

Crystallized ginger imparts a ton of fabulous flavor to yogurt. It’s a wonderful topping for almost any type of broiled or baked fruit. Look for it in the bulk-foods section of natural foods stores so you don’t have to buy more then you need.
