This recipe was inspired by a really old Jamie Oliver book where he discusses roasting fruit like peaches, apricots, nectarines, and plums. They're all too high carb, of course, but he DID mention strawberries. There wasn't a specific recipe or even suggested cooking methods, but it wasn't too hard to figure out!
Roasting the fruit gives it a wonderful depth of flavor, enhanced by a splash of vanilla after they have cooked. The result is actually quite like a jam – so it has many uses!
How to Make Low Carb Roasted Strawberries
Use a strawberry huller to remove the hull from a pound of fresh strawberries, then quarter or half the fruit, depending on size.
Sprinkle some granular sweetener over the strawberries (I use classic Lakanto – and you can get 20% off everything in the Lakanto store when you use coupon code SAFTC) and mix well.
Transfer to a small baking dish.
Roast in a preheated oven for thirty minutes, stirring half way through the cooking time.
The berries will break down and release a lot of juice. Stir in some vanilla extract, then let cool so that they become “jammy”.
Let cool completely then store in the fridge.
