I’ve been craving pears so I thought I’d have a go at caramelising one and making a superb vegan dessert.
I put 1/2 cup of raw cashews in water to soak whilst I made the other things.
I roasted 100g of raw pecans for 5 minutes at 160C then added 4 tsp maple syrup and put them back into the oven for 5 more minutes.
I washed the pears and grilled them whole turning them frequently to get the outsides black and the insides soft. This took around 1/2 an hour.
Once plated, I sprinkled cacao nibs and star anise powder over the whole thing.. 😍😍😍😍
