Fresh Grillin’ – Recipes for Eating Clean

Decadent and simple! Here’s a perfect way to use those pears sitting on your countertop. The presence of cardamom and honey gives this dessert a sweet touch of flavor, and the grilled pears are warm, soft, and tender. Add a pinch of finely chopped fresh basil on top for a pop of color, if desired. The glaze is incredible when used to coat raw nuts, too.
