Bread, Breakfast, Vegan

Breakfast. Hot Spiced Grapefruit and Savoury Croissants.

Grapefruit reminds me of my grandad.  He loved it.

He used to have a special curved knife for slicing the fruit away from the peel.  I wonder if they still exist?   Probably…..

Somehow grapefruit seem to be out of favour, but here’s a nice way of spicing them up….

hot ruby grapefruit – with maple syrup, cinnamon and ginger

…and ‘Jus-Rol’ Croisssants … a gift for vegans…and they are really nice.

freshly baked croissant – as they are… or savoury cheese and onion – vegan


croissant and grapefruit


How to to do it:

Hot Spiced Grapefruit.

Savoury Croissants.


  • 1 tin of ‘jus-rol’ vegan croissants ( makes 6)
  • Enough grapefruit (I used 2 Ruby Grapefruit)

For two grapefruit:

  • 4 tsps. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp. ginger powder

For two savoury croissants:

  • 50 gms. vegan grateable cheese
  • 1 spring onion
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 tbs. chopped parsley



  • Open tin of croissants and follow instructions.
  • Slice Grapefruit in half.
  • Using a sharp serrated knife, cut around the edge of the fruit to separate the fruit from the peel, and then slice about 8 segments from the centre outwards. (see photo)
    Drizzle each grapefruit half with 1 tsp. maple syrup.
  • Mix cinnamon and ginger powder together, and sprinkle about 1/2 tsp.on each grapefruit half.
  • Place on a grill pan under a pre-heated grill and grill until brown and bubbling slightly: 10-15 mins.
  • Grate vegan cheese.
  • Wash and finely chop spring onion.
  • Mix cheese, spring onion, parsley and pepper together.
  • The croissants take between 12-15 mins.
  • With about 5 mins. to go, remove croissants from oven, and slice crosswise through croissants: but not all the way through.
    Open up croissants, and stuff with cheese and spring onion mix.
  • Fold croissants back together and return to oven until done.
  • Remove grapefruit from under grill, and allow to cool slightly before serving.

Voila!  Breakfast is ready!

Just a hot pot of coffee or maybe a cup of Turmeric Spiced Cocoa.
