If you haven’t tried roasting apricots in the oven, you’re missing a treat. The softness of them, mixed with the sweetness and spices makes for a completely moreish snack. This recipe is from my book Going Vegan, which you can get from Amazon. Have these as a desert or simply as a snack, served hot or cold. These apricots are easy to cook and amazing to eat.
Prep time: 10 minutes. Cook time 30-40 minutes
600g ripe apricots, stoned and halved
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground mixed spice
pinch cayenne pepper
2 tbsp unrefined sugar.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 (180 C). Put all your ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix together with your hands until evenly combined. Place on a baking tray with the flesh side up and cook in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes, or until the edges have started to brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes or so before serving, or cool completely and then chill for 2 hours.
