SPICED POACHED PEAR TART

Let me introduce you to this weeks recipe my ‘Spiced Poached Pear Tart’ which is the perfect winter dessert for these chilly evenings! A perfect balance of spices, delicious poached pear and a nutritious raw tart base…..dreamy!  Pear tarte tatin has always been a bit of a tradition in my household, the weather turns a bit frosty and out comes the rich caramelised pear tart which is always irresistible. So I thought why not see whether I can make one which still incorporates all the rich flavours, carmalised pear and thick tart base but put a bit of a ‘The Nutritionista’ twist on it. So here you have it my ‘Spiced Poached Pear Tart’ or if you fancy my ‘Raw Pear Tarte Tatin’ which is not only delicious in flavour but also good for you. Now theres a dessert which ticks all the boxes.

See below for the recipe 🙂 x

Ingredients

Poached Pear Filling

  • 2 pears
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 handful of flaked almonds
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of raw honey
  • 1 orange

Raw Tart

  • 2 cups of almonds
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • Approx 5-10 dates depending how sticky you want the mixture
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil

Instructions for the tart

  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender, once combined press this mixture into a tart tray- making sure to press the mixture down into the tin firmly so it holds

Instructions for poached pears

  • Peel the pears then cut into halves- removing any stalks
  • Place a small pan on a medium to low heat and put the coconut oil, honey and cinnamon in swirling the pan to combine the flavours and melt together
  • Once it goes a golden colour half the vanilla pods and scrape out the seeds, then add the seeds and the pod to the pan and continue to swirl
  • Make sure the liquid doesn’t burn by keeping it on a low heat and swirling the pan
  • Add the zest of half an orange
  • Add in the pear slices and sprinkle the flaked almonds over the top
  • Allow the pears to soften in the pan, do this for around 4-5 mins until the pears have soaked up a good amount of the liquid
  • Once the pears have softened take them off the heat
  • Place the pears in the tart and then drizzle over the almonds and the juice, then top with the vanilla pod
  • Then tuck in and enjoy x
