broiled grapefruit with coconut cardamom cream

this is one of those recipes that you could argue belongs in the dessert category, as it's supremely decadent, but it could also pass as breakfast. it tastes way more unhealthy than it actually is—always a good thing in my book!

broiled grapefruit with coconut cardamom cream adapted from here

1 grapefruit, sliced in half
1/2 tbsp raw turbinado sugar

1 can full-fat coconut milk, placed in the fridge overnight
1/4 tsp ground cardamom

preheat your oven to the broil setting. place the grapefruit halves, cut side up, on a baking sheet. distribute the sugar evenly over both halves and place under the broiler for 4-5 minutes. open the can of coconut milk and carefully scrape the "cream" off the top—be careful not to get any of the remaining liquid mixed in with it! put your muscles to the test and whisk the cream in a bowl for about five minutes, or until it resembles whipped cream. whisk in the cardamom and serve over the broiled grapefruit.

for an extra fancy step, garnish with some fresh mint or crushed pistachios. or both!
