Honey Sauteed Pears with Edamame Over Coconut Rice

Could I have made that title longer?  Actually that’s the shortened one!  This dish has so much happening I had trouble naming it 🙂

Personally I adore pears; raw or cooked, red, yellow, green and brown I’ll eat it.  So every September I eagerly wait for my neighbor to put her pears out for sale; I’m not sure anyone else gets any.

Pictured I used the large red pears but any will work as long as they are not too soft.  Keep the ripe ones for eating.  Roasting or sauteeing pears requires them to be just the under side of ripe.  Still sweet and delicious, they hold up better.

Brown rice adds a sweet nuttiness to this dish that is perfectly complimented by the coconut and lime.  Dressed to impress this dinner is ready in 40 minutes or less if you make the rice ahead of time.  OR if you’re short on time a nice long grain white rice will do just fine.

Instructions
  1. Cook brown rice according to package directions. When rice has about 15 minutes left begin making the dressing and pears.
  2. Add all dressing ingredients to a medium sized pot. Simmer on medium-low for 10 minutes until flavors are incorporated and coconut milk has reduced slightly.
  3. Thinly slice pears, drizzle with honey and juice of 1 lime. Place tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet. Heat oil, add pears and saute for 5-8 minutes.
  4. Finely slice the cabbage and divide into 4 bowls (or plates).
  5. Top with cooked rice. Note: if the rice is warm it will slightly cook your cabbage. My children like it this way 🙂
  6. Add edamame. Pour on 1/4 of the warm dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with sauteed pears, serve and enjoy.
