This roasted maple papaya makes a delicious breakfast or dessert!
Papayas are a wonderful fruit. It took me a while to get used to their mild flavor, but now I love them dearly. They make an excellent addition to breakfast or even a light dessert, and pair well with many foods as a side dish. They are very high in vitamin C and vitamin A and give you a nice dose of potassium and fiber as well.
For this recipe, I used a very large Mexican Papaya. These are not the same as the smaller yellow variety. I find them to be more flavorful and sweet.
This delicious recipe is great as part of a balanced breakfast or a simple, clean dessert. Either way, if you love papaya, you’ll love this recipe.
