Poached Pears And Cashew Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Raw Cashews
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey
  • 2 Drops Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Pears
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Mint plus more for garnish

Method

Step 1

Cover the cashews with water and soak overnight.

Step 2

Drain the cashews, reserving the water. Place the cashews, honey, and vanilla in a blender and blend, adding small amounts of the soaking water until the mixture is smooth. Set aside.

Step 3

Peel the pears, cut in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Place the pear halves in a saucepan cut side down and add enough water to cover. Add the cinnamon stick and mint. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 6-8 minutes until the pears are tender but not mushy. Allow the pears to sit in cooking water with the heat off for 4-5 minutes, then remove them from the cooking liquid and allow to cool completely or serve slightly warmed.

Step 4

Serve topped with cashew cream.
