Just Another Meatless Monday Maple Roasted Pears with Pecans



Hey What's For Dinner



If you're looking for a delicious Vegan Dessert to to dazzle guests with, this one might be for you. Yes, we are still working our way through a case of pears, thankfully they're good eating and the work isn't too hard. This simple recipe is quick to make, easy to pop in the oven at the last minute and will delight even young guests.






Maple Roasted Pears with Pecans

6-8 firm ripe pears, I used D'Anjou
1TBSP lemon juice
3 TBSP maple syrup
1/2 cup pecan halves
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt or kosher salt

preheat oven to 350˚
wash and dry the pears
slice them into 4 pieces, I sliced off two whole sides and then the remaining pieces
put them in a bowl and drizzle on the lemon juice
then toss with the maple syrup
add the pecans and set aside
lightly grease a baking pan and pour in the pears
roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so
remove from the oven, sprinkle with salt and serve hot


The pears can be prepared ahead up to the point of tossing with lemon juice, then refrigerated until you are ready to roast them. This would make preparation even easier. 







Peace and Love--
