Cardamom Almond Pear Crisp for Two

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 9, 2012

Happy Friday!

Just a quick note about the pancake recipe I posted yesterday. I tried the pancakes this morning using a couple different methods after a reader mentioned the pancakes stuck to the pan after making a couple small substitutions. I went back into the kitchen to see if I could figure out why the pancakes might have stuck to the pan for someone else. For the first trial, I used an old skillet that wasn’t non-stick. The pancakes completely stuck to the skillet, just as I suspected. I also tried using my non-stick skillet, but I didn’t grease it first, and the pancakes stuck more than I’d like.

My suggestion is to use a non-stick pan and lightly grease it with oil before making the pancakes. I’ve made 5 batches this way and I didn’t have any problems with sticking. I’m also not sure how modifications to the recipe will hold up, such as flour substitutions, so I suggest following the recipe as written. It’s really anyone’s guess when changing a vegan & GF recipe!

In other news, I have a cute, little dessert for you today that is a cinch to whip up.

I had a couple pears on their last legs and thought it would be fun to make a 2-serving pear crisp in tiny little 8-oz ramekins.

Sometimes it’s nice to make a smaller portion when you don’t want to spend a lot of time prepping ingredients. It’s just enough to satisfy the sweet tooth!

Using my Strawberry Apple Breakfast Crisp (image above), I cut it down to make just two servings and then swapped out the fruit and spices. The result is a healthy pear crisp that is just sweet enough without going overboard.

Cardamom Almond Pear Crisp for Two

Vegan, soy-free

By

This crisp is flourless, all-natural, low in sugar, and vegan. I love the chewy topping thanks to the almond mixture. To make this gluten-free, use certified gluten-free oats.

Adapted from my Flourless Strawberry Apple Breakfast Crisp

Yield
2 servings
Prep time
Cook time

Ingredients:

For the fruit mixture
  • 2 cups chopped pears, unpeeled (about 2)
  • 1 tbsp Sucanat or brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom (or cinnamon)
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped (or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract)
For the topping
  • 1 tsp coconut oil, melted (or olive oil)
  • 3 tbsp almonds
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp Sucanat or brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease two (8-oz) ramekin dishes with oil.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the fruit mixture ingredients (chopped pears, sugar, cornstarch, cardamom/cinnamon, and vanilla).
  3. In a processor (I used my mini processor), process the almonds until finely chopped. Now add in the oats and process just until chopped. If you don’t have a processor, you can probably do this by hand.
  4. In a small bowl, melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Now stir in the rest of the topping ingredients. Add 2 tablespoons of the topping mixture into fruit mixture and stir until combined. Divide the fruit mixture into ramekins. Sprinkle the rest of the topping on top of the fruit mixture.
  5. Cover ramekins with lid (or cover with tin foil and poke a couple holes). Bake, covered, at 400F for 22-25 minutes. The topping will burn if you don’t cover it. Allow to slightly cool for 10 minutes before serving with a scoop of vegan ice cream. Dig in!!!

A light and healthy dessert that will leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied just in time for spring!

IMG_8051

You can serve it naked, but I definitely recommend serving it with a scoop of vegan ice cream. :) That one is a no brainer. The ice cream gets all melty and warm, creating a gooey, comforting dessert.

Can I just say how pumped I am over the spring-like weather forecast next week?

Pear crisp sounds amazing! I’d love to try this with some blueberries added in too! a

Cardamom has been a recent discovery to me, but I love the funky spice it gives desserts. Have you made cardamom whipped cream? Love that as a topping and I bet it would also be good on this crisp!

I really don’t think there is a more perfection combination of sweet foods than a crisp with vanilla ice cream. (Except maybe french toast with vanilla ice cream..)
I was on a huge cardamom kick over the last few months that started with these cookies: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2607
but now I’m kind of burnt out. That being said, your recipe sounds pretty darn tasty!

Cardamom is the best! I lived with a Pakistani woman who used it in a lot of her desserts. She’d always beg me to try them, and even though I knew what she was up to, I couldn’t resist. Then she’d say, “Okay, now you do the dishes.” Tricky lady!

Do you think you could use melted Earth Balance instead of coconut oil? I have actually never bought coconut oil or butter yet. This might be a reason to give it a try!

Yum. I just happen to have pears, so this will be a perfect dessert for Saturday night. Cardamom is one of my favorite spices. I put it in cold water and bring to a boil, then steep my tea. Why don’t you move down here? Our temp is mid-60 today, but will be in the mid-70’s all next week. Southern NC. Would love to have you nearby :)

Alyssa March 9, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Yes, we are finally having some nice weather here in Colorado too:) I have a question for whomever, I never used a treadmill before this winter for running. So I have been trying to train throughout the winter on one and this week got out to run outside and I stink. Is the treadmill not even close to real running or is there a trick (like run on a treadmill twice as long as you would outside)? Anyone else have this problem?

Reply

Angela March 9, 2012 at 5:28 pm

I notice that too Alyssa. When I run on the treadmill, I always leave it at 2% (sometimes 1%) incline to “make up for” the lack of resistance that I’d naturally get outdoors with hills, wind, etc. So far my transition has been a lot more smooth by doing this!

The weather has been weirdly warm in Winnipeg this winter. This week it’s highs of 5 degrees. With the daylight saving time adjustment this week I can finally start running outside after I put the kidlets to bed. I’m kind of a wimp and I don’t like running in the dark in the suburbs. If I slipped and fell on the ice somewhere and knocked myself out, the snowbanks would hide me. :)

Hi Angela,
I know I have already asked you to take a gander at the apple-chestnut recipe. I will let you know that I attempted at making my own vegan version and they came out good but I wasnt blown away so maybe your recipe will be better.
Anyhow, I have recently discovered loquats (japanese plums) and I am wondering if you have ever cooked/eaten these? I am finding a lot of homemade jam recipes for them.
Also, what about farina or crema de arroz? Also known as cream of wheat. I usually eat this for breakfast and I LOVE it but I am wondering you are familiar with any strange recipes that use this?

Thanks for the awesomeness!

I wish I could keep that pace that you do… although I have to say, I have been switching it up on my treadmill warm-up before weights, kind of like your treadmill workouts, and I think it’s made a difference!

This desert looks very (very-very) delicious! Not to mention that with the still slightly chilly weather here (today we had our first real spring-ish sun) – a warm dessert like this one is extra appreciated.

I usually make something similar (replace the pears with apples, change some of the herbs and add more things like rolled oats and other healthy grains) for breakfast. But I never thought of pear and cardemon before. Which is silly, because I love both – so thank you for this recipe! :D

I also never had vegan ice-cream before but then again: there is a first time for everything. I must admit that I have gotten more than curious about it after all the praise from various people!

Hi Angela!

I love your blog and have been reading it for years. Keep up the yummy cooking! Like you, I’m a runner, and have been vegan for about 5 months. Recently though I found out that I am anemic, and was wondering what you do to make sure you get enough iron? I would love if you had a “super iron meal” recipe or something like that. (Spinach, quinua, lentil, tofu sort of thing? It sounds yummy already). I’m taking supplements now but I would much rather be able to get my iron from my diet than a pill!

And yes, we’ve had warm weather in Ithaca, NY too! Yesterday was beautiful, went on an 11 mile run, and I was so happy.

Best,

Kathleen

I usually times the recipe by 5 to 8 for a group and it works splendidly – just needs a much longer cooking time. Everyone loves it and using cardamom puts it into the ‘interesting and mysterious’ realm!
