This is a recipe that would be great on a Sunday night when you do not feel like cooking much.

Although it has sweet ingredients in it, I have also added some tasty cheese and garlic, and it would therefore make a good snack as well.

I ate it with a savoury meal, however I think it is better suited as a dessert or snack.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4 half pears

2 large pears, halved
½ cup rolled oats
1/8 cup raisins
1 clove garlic, crushed
Small handful of walnuts, roughly broken up
About 2 - 3 tbsp cheese, grated
50 g butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 180°/160° fan forced.

Remove the cores from the pears and dig out a bit of the pear flesh so you have a decent size to fill them.


Slice a small piece off the underside of the pears so that they sit flat, and put them on a baking tray lined with baking paper, or spray.

Combine the oats, raisins, garlic, walnuts and cheese.


Wash your hands, and mix the melted butter through this mixture with your hands.

Fill each pear half with the filling, pressing it down so you can fit it in.


Bake for about 15 minutes or till lightly coloured and soft.

I served them with my mince and noodles.
