Roasted Pears
Serves: 4
  • Ingredients:
  • 4 medium ripe, but firm pears
  • 2 tablespoons stevia mixed with 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix the water, stevia, lemon juice, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a large bowl to create a syrup.  Halve and core the pears and gently toss them in the maple syrup mixture.
  2. Arrange the pears cut-side down in the baking dish.  Pour any remaining syrupy mixture over the top and pour the water into the bottom of the pan.
  3. Roast the pears for 20 minutes, then gently turn them over and spoon some of the cooking liquid on top.  Continue roasting, basting the pears occasionally until the pears are tender and golden, bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes.
