An updated, healthy version of the famous and fabulous Strawberries Romanoff. From Nora's in Washington, D.C. You may use other berries or seasonal fruit, but this combination is quite beautiful.
- 1 pint blueberries, washed and drained
- 1 pint raspberries, washed and drained
- 1 cup low-fat yogurt or 1 cup mascarpone cheese
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- mint, for garnish
- Preheat broiler.
- Divide the berries among 4 individual oven proof dishes.
- Top each with 1/4 of the yogurt (or mascarpone cheese) and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
- Broil for about 3 minutes or until the sugar melts and caramelizes on the top.
- Serve with a garnish of mint.
After reading the other 2 reviews, I opted for the mascarpone cheese topping! Also left out the mint, since I didn't have any on hand! Very nice dessert, which I shared with a calorie conscious neighbor couple! All agree ~ YOU HAVE A HIT! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the 1-2-3 Hit Wonders cooking game]
I made this with some rather tasteless cherries I poached in honey for awhile first. Then I used sour cream with some vanilla (the brand of sour cream I bought actually tasted like yogurt, it was weird). It tasted really good, but the liquid from the yogurt made it difficult to brulee properly - it was too moist on top. I can see mascarpone making a better top. Mine was more like a lacey pattern and softened very quickly.
What a treat, Kate! This is so amazingly low-cal, low-fat & easy-to-fix w/a spec outcome that convinces you it is much richer than it truly is. I made it today in 4 ramekins when my MIL came for an afternoon visit & she loved it! We both did is more accutate. I used blueberries & strawberries w/mascarpone, but didn't have the fresh mint. This will grace our table as dessert for our next dinner party. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
