Coming up with this recipe wasn’t a bad idea for me at all…. very yummy and above all nutritious due to the immense benefits of both beets and pear.

A few days ago, while I was with a friend, she recommended that I come up with this recipe which is just a perfect dessert because all the ingredients are just amazing.

Poached pear with beets may not be anything new or fantastic, but this particular recipe was super delicious, the perfect combination to any main meal. This recipe is quite straight forward and easy to make.

Simply peel and slice up the beets, throw them into a pot of boiling water with cinnamon and add few drops of sugar to get the water nice, colored and ready for the pear to jump in…LOL.

Then cover the pot and cook until the pear is tender. Just as easy as that. A simple pleasing recipe which you can then dish out as desired.
