Pears are low in calories, they provide a great source of dietary fibre, vitamin C and other nutrients. And although delicious eaten as is, try the recipe below as an alternative to eating them raw.
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 large pears, cored and cubed
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- pinch of salt
Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add in coconut oil with pears and saute until they begin to soften. This will take about 3 minutes.
Mix in the ginger, lemon zest, and salt to the pears. Continue cooking until the pears are golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
To serve, spoon the pears into dessert bowls and add muesli or sliced almonds over the top. To give this dish a decadent twist, add grated 70% dark chocolate and drizzle each serving with a couple of tablespoons of warm coconut milk or milk kefir.
