Pear Canapes

These days everyone is being health-conscious. Everything served at the table must have fewer calories and still taste good. Combining raw fruits and vegetables gives the natural sweetness and taste that is not only filling but also satisfying. Pear canapés is a recipe for your next cocktail party that will be received well but also be ready in a jiffy.

Pear Canapes

Ingredients

1 pack ready-made canapés

Pear Stuffing

Garnish of your choice

Canapés

If you are not able to get your hands on ready-made canapés, you can always cut bread into shapes of your choice and shallow fry them for base. You do not need to deep fry the canapés. Simply place them on a hot pan for 1 min and they will be as crisp as ever.

Pear Stuffing

1 cup finely chopped pear

¼ cup finely shredded carrots

¼ cup finely chopped onions

2 tbsp finely chopped ginger

1 tbsp fennel

¼ cup bread crumbs

2 tbsp chopped parsley

Salt and pepper for seasoning

1 lemon

1 tbsp butter

Squeeze lime juice over chopped pear to prevent it from browning. Also, let the pear marinate in the juice for 10-15 mins to take the flavor.

Heat the butter in a skillet. Add onions, ginger and fennel. Cook onions till translucent. You will notice that fennel will start giving a beautiful aroma.

Take off the flame. Mix with carrots, parsley, pear and bread crumbs. Add salt and pepper.

The stuffing should have the subtle taste of ginger and fennel along with the sweetness of pear with a hint of lime.

Putting it together

Place 1 tbsp of pear stuffing in a canapé boat. Sprinkle grated cheese and bake till cheese turns golden. Alternatively, for a healthier option, decorate with a fresh cherry.
