Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Peel, halve and core the pears. Mix the sugar and lemon juice with 200ml water in a small saucepan. Halve the vanilla pod and scrape the seeds into the pan, then add the pod (or add the vanilla bean paste). Heat until the sugar has dissolved.

  • STEP 2

    Add the pears and cover the surface with a circle of baking parchment (this will ensure the pears cook through evenly). Cook for 15-20 mins until the pears feel soft when poked with a knife, then leave to cool. Can be kept chilled in the liquid for up to one week.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, make your porridge. Mix the almond butter with enough poached pear liquid to form a drizzling consistency, then spoon over the porridge and top the bowls with the pears. Scatter with the toasted flaked almonds.
