Wicked Roasted Pear with Porridge and Orange
Roasted pears and porridge breakfast
I woke up super early this morning (couldn’t sleep, the joys of menopause) and I’m not very good at doing nothing or lying in bed. I thought I would make use of my time this morning making my partner a yummy breakfast, but what...He LOVES pears and Porridge so I decided to surprise him and make him a breakfast combined with his two favourite brekki foods and since I’ll be eating it too I’ll throw in orange-blossom water. With the help of Delicious magazine and my determination I made this scrumptious breakfast! Yummy combination of his favourite things to to eat.
Prepare porridge according to instructions on packet or follow one of my porridge recipes (under breakfast topic)
200 gm honey
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon vanila extract
4 pears, unpeeled/peeled (up to you), halved, cores removed.
2 teaspoons orange-blossom water, or to taste
Preheat oven to 200C. In a bowl over medium heat, simmer honey, juices, rinds, and vanilla extract until reduced to a light syrup about 8 min.
In a roasting pan lined with baking paper, place pears, cut-side up. Pour over half the honey mixture and roast, basting occasionally, until tender and beginning to caramelise about 20min Remove pears from pan, stir the orange-blossom water with the remaining honey mixture. Place pears on top of porridge and drizzle with syrup. YUUUMMM
You can store the pears in a container in the fridge for several days.
