Today just a quick recipe, that can work as a dessert, breakfast or afternoon snack: yogurt with red wine poached pears and pumpkin seeds.
I made it a couple of weeks ago with a pear that was past its primes, some leftover wine and warming spices like cinnamon and pepper. It turned out comforting but not too sweet. Perfect for ending a meal or having breakfast on (don’t worry: wine evaporates so that the pears are not alcoholic).
Poached pears with yogurt and
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1-2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 1 pear
- 1/2 cup wine
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 stick cinnamon
- 2 cloves
- 3 grains black peppers
- In a small pot bring the wine with the spices and tho honey to a boil and add the diced pear.
- Simmer until the wine is mostly evaporated and has reduced down to a slightly sticky syrup.
- Divide the yogurt between two cups and layer it with the pear for sweetness and the pumpkin seeds for some crunch.
