Total time: 25 mins
2 Waitrose & Partners Papayas
2 limes, juice
2 tbsp light brown soft sugar
4 scoops vanilla ice cream, to serve
1 tbsp shredded mint leaves, to serve
1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Halve the papayas and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon. Arrange cut-side up on a baking tray and squeeze over the lime juice. Sprinkle over the sugar and roast for 15-20 minutes.
2. Serve half a papaya per person with a scoop of ice cream and a scattering of shredded mint.
Roasting any fruit intensifies its sweet flavour, and papaya is a delicious example of this, particularly when sprinkled with sugar to create a lovely caramelised edge. Try serving with Waitrose 1 Malaysian Coconut & Lime Ice Cream instead of classic vanilla for an extra tropical touch.
