While there is a lot of of cooking communities on LJ, I wanted my own little space to jot down simple recipes that I'm trying out and experimenting with.  I don't know yet what I wish to do with the comm, but if others find interest to it, it will probably change.

I'm trying to eat more healthfully and to prepare fruits and vegetables in a tasty way so I can reach the 7-10 fruits and veggies a day recommended by many of the cancer research groups that promote healthy eating. This is not a  strictly vegetarian community. Some recipes might include meat, that can be easily replaced by tofu or legumes.

Because pears are abundant at this moment where I live, t I will be cooking pears tonight to accompany the light main course and steamed broccoli.

Baked Pears with Cheese

- Choose 2 pears that are ripe but still holding their shape. Peel and slice in two. Core, and place into a very lightly oiled overproof dish.

- In a small bowl, mix and purée a small quantity of soft cheese (4tbsp of goat cheese, feta or ricotta) with ground pepper and herbs (chives, basil - fresh or dry).

- Divide the cheese mix between the cored pears. Garnish with fresh or dry herbs, to taste.

- Bake at 400F, for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.

(Servings: 2 or 4)
