Roasting halved papayas with brown sugar and ginger deepens the fruit's natural sugars; a dash of cayenne and a squeeze of lime further enliven the dish.

Cook's Notes

These fruits can be served as a dessert, or as a side dish in place of roasted squash. We like to use Solo papayas for their petite size; if you use Mexican ones, quarter them instead of halving.

    I had some partially ripe papaya from our tree, so I took the cut and peeled pieces, subbed the butter for coconut oil, added the rest of the ingredients, and cooked it in the microwave until it was tender. Then I used the hand held blender to purée it. It was fabulous and I will make it again!
