Ginger and Pear

Working with leftovers sometimes makes you come up with amazing combinations, here’s what I threw together yesterday evening as a quick snack, it would be amazing for breakfast too!

‘Quinoa with Ginger and Pear’

  • 4 T quinoa
  • 4 T soy milk + 4 T of water
  • a couple of slices of ginger
  • 1/4 of a pear
  • cinnamon
  • honey
  • some olive oil

In a small casserole put together the milk, water and ginger slices, let this mixture come to a boil. Once it boils lower the heat, add the quinoa and let is simmer for about 20 minutes.

Honey Glazed Cinnamon Pear: Slice the pear and coat them with honey. Sauté them in some olive oil in a skillet, add some cinnamon once you’ve put them in the skillet.

This pear is also great in oatmeal or on ice cream!

Make sure to take the pieces of ginger out of the quinoa before serving, I forgot to do that and got a huge chunk of ginger with my first bite, intense flavour is an understatement in this case!

Love, M.

  1. What in the world does quinoa taste like?

    • It tastes a bit ‘nutty and earthly’ but it also takes a lot of the taste of the liquid in which you cook it, that’s why I like to cook it in soy milk, it gets slightly sweet then, if you want it savoury, cooking it in some stock would be great 🙂
