How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together wine, sugar, vanilla bean and seeds and 3 cups water in a pan large enough to hold pears standing up. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.

Step 2

Reduce heat to low, add pears, cover with parchment and simmer until pears are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 3

Remove pears to a bowl; set aside. Remove vanilla bean. Raise heat to high; boil poaching liquid until reduced to 1 1/2 cups, 35 minutes. Cover and chill pears and syrup.

Step 4

Whisk yogurt and syrup together. Spoon sauce onto serving plates; place pear in center of each.
