Fresh sliced strawberries make a great topping for a lot of foods: yogurt, oatmeal, and ice cream, to name a few.
But have you ever tried kicking it up a notch and roasting those cute little berries?
It’s super easy to do and takes almost no time at all, and the strawberries get melt-in-your-mouth soft and ooze a yummy strawberry liquid. I wouldn’t say they get a lot sweeter, but their flavor becomes more intense.
Roasting strawberries is also a great way to use that oh-crap-I-forgot-I-bought-strawberries container of strawberries you find hiding in the back of the fridge. The roasting process will hide any of their imperfections and bring out their best flavor.
A lot of people add sugar to their roasted strawberries, but I don’t think it’s necessary. It’s better to let their natural flavor shine through. Instead, a little vanilla extract gives them something special.
- 1 pound strawberries sliced
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Slice strawberries into a bowl. Toss with vanilla extract until fully coated.
Place on a single layer on a cookie sheet, preferably one that has been covered with a silicone baking mat.
Bake at 375 degrees for ten minutes.
Best served within a few hours. Tastes great chilled!

Serve on top of ice cream, yogurt, oatmeal (get my recipe for Vanilla Roasted Strawberry Oatmeal here!), biscuits, etc … or just eat it on its own. I won’t judge. 🙂
