Recipe Notes

The strawberries don't look saucy immediately but once you scrape them into a bowl, they get saucier as they cool.

Vanilla bean powder gives the best flavour. It might seem expensive but a little goes a very long way. My bag has lasted well over a year and is still going strong. If you can't find it then you could scrape the seeds from a vanilla pod instead. If you only have vanilla extract use ½ teaspoon but please bear in mind that the flavour will not be as good if you use that.

Store these Vanilla Roasted Strawberries in a sealed container in the fridge. They will keep for around 5 days
