Honey-Roasted Pears with Greek Yogurt

Yield: 4 servings (1/2 pear each)

The tangy Greek yogurt is a nice balance to the sweet roasted pears. The honey and walnuts just seal the deal on this tasty dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch fresh thyme sprigs
  • 2 ripe but firm Bartlett pears, halved and cored
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
  • 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt

Procedure:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Scatter thyme sprigs on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Place pear halves, cut side down, on work surface. Starting 1/2 inch from stem and leaving pear half intact, cut each lengthwise into scant 1/3- to 1/2-inch-wide slices. Press pear gently to fan slices; place atop thyme sprigs.
  • Drizzle pears with honey; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake until pears are tender, about 15 minutes. Serve warm. Top each pear fan with a dollop of fat free Greek yogurt and sprinkle with toasted walnuts.
