Poached Pears And Cashew Cream - Dr. Mark Hyman

Poached Pears And Cashew Cream

  • 1 Cup Raw Cashews
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey
  • 2 Drops Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Pears
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Mint plus more for garnish
  1. Cover the cashews with water and soak overnight.
  2. Drain the cashews, reserving the water. Place the cashews, honey, and vanilla in a blender and blend, adding small amounts of the soaking water until the mixture is smooth. Set aside.
  3. Peel the pears, cut in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Place the pear halves in a saucepan cut side down and add enough water to cover. Add the cinnamon stick and mint. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 6-8 minutes until the pears are tender but not mushy. Allow the pears to sit in cooking water with the heat off for 4-5 minutes, then remove them from the cooking liquid and allow to cool completely or serve slightly warmed.
  4. Serve topped with cashew cream.
