Honey Roasted Pear With Pumpkin and Cranberries

Total Time

Warm, comforting autumn flavours are very prominent in the side dish, which is so sweet you would think it was dessert!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine honey with the three spices; blend well.
  2. Lay the pear on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle the spiced honey overtop.
  3. Roast the pear in a preheated 350* oven for about 10-15 minutes or until softened and caramelized.
  4. Stir the roasted pear into the pumpkin; stir in brown sugar.
  5. Stir in the cranberries.
  6. Cover and keep in a 200* degree oven for 30-45 minutes until heated through (and flavours have melded).
  7. Stir and serve (also really tasty the next day, when the flavours have REALLY melded!).
  8. Enjoy!

I made this and couldn't quite decide if it was an odd side dish or a messy dessert. I added a gingersnap crumb topping (with brown sugar and pecans), baked it another 25 minutes, and made it into a crumble. As such, it's found its way into my recipe file!

Comfort food, pure and simple! A perfect side dish for getting your kids to eat their veggies, and if you put a dollop of whip cream on top, it would make a fine, not-too-sweet dessert, for people who aren't big on sweets!
