Easy Steps


Peel the pears (leave the stem on) and beetroot.


In a pot add the pears, beetroot, cinnamon stick, mint leaves, ½ cup of sugar, and water.


Let the ingredients boil on medium heat.


Bring the water and sugar to a boil. Lower the heat and let the syrup simmer until the pears are cooked. This process will take different amounts of time, depending on the ripeness of the pears that you are using.

Ingredients List
  • 2 firm pears
  • 3 cups water
  • ½ cup palm or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon or 1 stick of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup mint leaves
  • 2 beetroot
  • 6-7 mint leaves
  • ¼ cup pistachio
  • 1 box of ricotta cheese (250 gm)
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Once the pears are cooked, let them fully cool into the poaching liquid. Cool at room temperature and then store the pot in the fridge until ready to serve. If you’d like to serve the pears while still hot, that will work as well.


For the whipped ricotta, take a mixing bowl, add in the cheese, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla extract, and whisk well.


Plating- scoop the cheese onto a plate and place the poached pear on the cheese. Garnish with some pistachio and mint leaves.
