Key Ingredients

• Bosc pears - pealed, halved and cored.

• Coconut yoghurt - make sure it is natural with no unfriendly AIP thickeners.

• Maple syrup - always look for 100% natural.

When I make poached pears I always use a deep pan and simmer them slowly on each side so I can achieve the perfect soft yet firm texture. I place the pears cut side down side by side and pour just enough water to cover them.

  1. Peal, halve and core pears.
