  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 to 3 servings 1x




2 bosc or other firm variety of pear

2 tablespoons ghee

2 teaspoons honey

½ teaspoon minced ginger

1 cup cooked einkorn or spelt berries

For serving

1 cup yogurt

1 recipe for sesame sunflower crunch


  • Cut the pear into quarters and cut out the core/seeds. Cut each quarter in half. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the ghee and honey. Once the ghee has melted and coated the bottom of the pan, add the pears cut-side down.
  • Cook the pears until golden, turn to the other cut-side, and cook again until that side is golden. Stir in the ginger and cook for a minute more. Finally, add the einkorn. Cook for another minute or two; or slightly longer if using leftover einkorn.
  • Spoon the yogurt into two bowls and top with the pears and a hefty sprinkle of the sunflower crunch.


Tips + Tricks: Einkorn is a grain that I like to make on the weekends and stash in my refrigerator for quick meals throughout the week. I recommend cooking up the einkorn ahead of time.
