By Christian Eedes, 24 April 2018
Serve with a yoghurt and muesli topping.
4 guavas, washed and halved
1 tsp (5ml) ground cinnamon
1 tbsp (15ml) castor sugar
2 tsp (10ml) butter
1 cup (250ml) fat free plain yoghurt
zest of 1 orange
zest of 1 lemon
1 cup (250ml) muesli
honey for serving
Preheat oven to 180°C. Place halved guavas, flesh side up, on a baking tray and dust lightly with the cinnamon and sugar. Place a tiny knob of butter on each guava and roast in oven for 20-25 minutes or until soft and lightly caramelised. Remove from oven and set aside.
Place the yoghurt into a glass bowl and add the orange and lemon zest. Add a squeeze of honey if needed.
Serve warm roasted guavas topped with a spoonful of muesli and a dollop of zesty yoghurt on the side.
Garnish with a swirl of honey and enjoy.
This dish will pair well with a red muscadel or a tawny port.
