Looking for a dessert that is healthy - and easy to make? This Roasted Pears dessert ticks both boxes! Slightly under-ripe pears are drizzled with olive oil and topped with a bit of salt to intensify the sweetness, then baked in the oven. This caramelizes the pears, making them even sweeter. Then they're topped with honey for even more sweetness and baked until soft. This dessert is perfect for a casual weeknight, but it's also elegant enough to make for dinner parties. Besides being tasty, this dessert contains vitamins C and fiber to boost your immune and digestive system. This easy yet delicious dessert is sure to be a hit!

Can pears be roasted?

Yes, you can roast pears as long as you pick pears that can hold their shape in the oven.

What pears are good for roasting?

Pears which are good for baking are those that can withstand the heat during the baking, and not turn to mush. You want to use crispy pears such as Bosc, Anjou, Concorde, or French butter. 

Are baked pears healthy?

Yes, they are. They're rich in vitamin C which boosts the immune system, and they contain fiber which is good for the digestive system. They also contain potassium which is vital for healthy blood pressures. 

Will baking pears soften them?

Yes, baking pears soften them. In fact, pears that are very ripe will become quite soft when you bake them. So you want to use pears that are slightly under ripe to prevent this from happening.
