How to Make It

Step 2

 Spread sour cream onto toasted bread, and sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon. Once cooked, remove pear from the liquid, and cut into quarters. Serve the pear with the toast and blueberries, drizzled with honey.

Chef's Notes

Smart Tip: Cook a large batch of pears, and keep them in the fridge in their poaching liquid. On nonfast days, you can enjoy them as a dessert with plain yogurt.
