Poached pears with Greek Yogurt & Oats- serves 2
This recipe was borne from over-ripe pears in the fruit bowl and a stonking hangover!
4 pears, peeled, cored & sliced
1 star anise
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp vanilla bean paste/vanilla extract
1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
2 tbsp rolled oats
1 tsp flaxseed powder
4 dessertspoons non fat greek yogurt
In a small saucepan, put the pears, spices and vanilla. Cook on a low heat for about 5-8 mins, stirring every so often.
When the fruit has broken down, add the oats and flaxseed. Stir.
Put the yogurt in a bowl and top with the fruit mixture. Drizzle some maple syrup if you like.
