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.
