Warm Cinnamon Pears

Pears are best in mid winter I think. Nutrition wise- Pears are a fabulous source of fibre.

Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory and studies show it can help to keep blood sugar levels stable. I aim to have a tsp of cinnamon daily.

These were golden pears – VERY Sweet and juicy to begin with. Such an easy and wholesome recipe with very few ingredients.

These are fabulous to have for breakfast or to serve to guests at a dinner party.

Ingredients:

Serves around 8-10 people. 

  •  6-8 pears 
  • 2 lemons/oranges
  • 2-3 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 vanilla bean sticks or tsp vanilla powder
  • 5 fresh dates
  • 1 cup raw walnuts

Method:

Preheat oven on 180 degrees. (on bake)

*   Slice pears into wedges
*   Toss in freshly squeezed orange/lemon juice and lots of cinnamon
*   Place in an oven-proof baking dish
*   Add fresh dates (pitted)
*   Add the walnuts
*   Toss all together again
*   Insert a few cinnamon sticks (you could also add the vanilla bean  if you want/have)
*   Cover with tin foil and place in a moderate oven for about 40- 50 minutes, until fragrant (slow and low is good)
*   Remove foil and grill for 10 minutes – top layer will become roasted and chewy.

Serve with a dollop of your favourite Greek yoghurt or coconut ice cream/cream.

Or eat with porridge for brekkie.
