HONEY ROASTED PEARS WITH QUINOA NUT CRUNCH
1/2 cup puffed quinoa
1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
1/4 cup cocoa nibs
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup cocchi americano
1/2 cup honey
4 semi-ripe pears
creme fraiche (optional)
honey for serving
rose petals for serving
Combine the quinoa, hazelnuts, cocoa nibs, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
Combine the cocchi and honey in a small pot and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat.
Using a vegetable peeler, peel the pears, leaving the stems on. Slice the pears in half and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
Pour the syrup over the pears and bake for 30-40 minutes, basting the pears with more syrup as needed, until tender and beginning to caramelize around the edges.
Serve the pears with a dollop of creme fraiche, a drizzle of honey, a sprinkle of the quinoa nut crunch and a few rose petals.
