A relative gave us a gift of holiday pears, and we immediately knew what we had to do with them — make vegan, gluten-free pear crisp!
It already feels like autumn where we live, and we’re craving warmer, heartier foods. Of course, sweet desserts are delicious any time of the year. We recently modified a traditional rhubarb/pear/almond crumble recipe by substituting Earth Balance for butter, and gluten-free flour for the whole wheat kind. Our results were stellar. You’ll keep going back to the pan for this dessert — again, and again and again. Try your hardest not to devour the entire thing!
We love unique flavor combinations, especially when made as a soda syrup. It takes the soda to a sophisticated level, and offers a surprise for guests. The combination of pear and rosemary offers a delightful combination with light pear flavor, with an unexpected depth brought by the rosemary.
