This is a delicious way to serve pears as a savoury side dish or light lunch.
4-6 ripe pears
Goat’s cheese (the soft variety)
Honey or Maple syrup
Chopped pecan nuts
Green salad leaves
Maldon salt flakes
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Slice pears vertically – don’t peel or core. Arrange on baking sheet, then drizzle with a little olive oil and honey or maple syrup. Sprinkle with a few rosemary sprigs. Bake for 20-30 mins or until golden around the edges.
Serve on a bed of lightly dressed salad leaves. Top the pear slices with the goat’s cheese and nuts.
