Roasted Cantaloupe

1 Cantaloupe
2 TBSP vanilla or chai spiced sugar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Wash, cut in half, and remove the seeds from the cantaloupe. Cut it into wedges, and then into cubes.

Toss the cubes with vanilla or chai spiced sugar.

Roast until the melon begins to look a little shriveled and has started to caramelize, about 20 minutes. Cool completely. Serve over oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, custard, or anywhere else you like!
