Hot minted strawberries

So to celebrate the start of Wimbledon fortnight there has to be strawberries.  Whilst I love my strawberries cold and fresh (preferably with ice cream) on a damp wet and slightly cold summer morning having them warm seemed more appropriate.

Hot strawberries and mint

Hot minted strawberries (serves one)

  • Handful of fresh strawberries – halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • A bunch of mint finely chopped – I like a big bunch to make it really minty.

Heat the oil in a pan and add the strawberries – cook gently for 3-4 minutes until just going soft and a bit squishy.  Turn off the heat and stir in the chopped mint. I added a few extra whole mint leaves to serve.

Lovely served with a cream cheese bagel – I love mopping up the minty strawberry juices with it.
