1/2 pound pears grown locally are a treat, and this recipe for Cinnamon Oat Baked Pears was equally delightful. The recipe is from iheartnaptime.net and here is my version:
Cinnamon Oat Baked Pears
2 Pears, cored
3 Tbsp. Oats
2 Tbsp. Pecan Meal
2 tsp. Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 Tbsp. Greek Yogurt, nonfat
1 Tbsp. Earth Balance Buttery Spread
Mix ingredients. Stuff Pears.
3 Tbsp. Apple Juice
Pour apple juice in bottom of small baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
We ate ours with a dollop of no added sugar ice cream (then a little dream whip). This was delicious.
Now for the main course:
Stuffed Butternut Squash was inspired by Eating Well's recipe using Delicata Squash.
Stuffed Butternut Squash
Half and seed. Place face down in a foil lined baking dish. Bake at 425 for 30 minutes.
6 oz. 92% Lean Ground Beef
1 Spring Onion
Brown beef with onion in non-stick skillet. Add
2 tsp. Chili Powder
1/4 cup Quinoa
1/2 cup Water
Bring water to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until water is absorbed. Mix in cooked ground beef.
Fill squash. Serve with a homemade salsa.
