Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    -4 dessert pears (peeled with stalks kept on)
    -1 vanilla pod
    -150g golden caster sugar
    -2 strips of lemon zest
    -400ml Provamel Vanilla Pouring plant-based yogurt alternative
    -2 tbsp toasted pistachio nuts (roughly chopped)
    -seeds from half a pomegranate


Remove the seeds from the vanilla pod by slitting the pod in half and scraping with the tip of a knife.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove 2 strips of peel from a lemon, making sure you take none of the white pith.

Add the vanilla and lemon to a pan along with the pears and golden caster sugar. Pour over enough boiling water to just about cover the pears. Simmer for 15-20 mins until cooked through but still firm.

Pour the Provamel Vanilla yoghurt into 4 bowls and top with the pears, leaving behind the poaching liquor.

Increase the heat and boil the poaching liquor until it is reduced and syrupy. Spoon over the pears then sprinkle over the pistachios and pomegranate seeds to serve.
