Poached Pears

Poached Pears (Serves 4)



200ml apple juice

1 cinnamon stick

4 just-ripe pears, halved lengthways and cores removed

60g flaked almonds, toasted

300g low fat natural yoghurt


Put the apple juice and cinnamon stick into a saucepan, along with 200ml water and 200ml apple juice. Bring to the boil.


Reduce to a simmer, and add the pears. Cover with a lid and cook for 10-15mins, or until the pears are tender. Remove the pears using a slotted spoon and set aside.


Bring the remaining juice to the boil, and reduce volume by half.


To serve, place half a pear in the centre of a plate, top with yoghurt and flaked almonds, and spoon a little of the reduced juice around the edge.
