Spiced Pear Soufflé

I am not a fan of pears to just sit down and eat but I love them cooked as a dessert and this is one of my favorites. It’s quite simply “LIP SMACKING GOOD” and not at all difficult to make. In fact, this pear soufflé is a breeze to whip up!


Serves 4-6
8 (4oz.) Ramekins or 6 (6oz.) Ramekins Needed

Ghee (butter will also work)
Granulated Maple Sugar
2 medium to large pears, peeled, cored, and quartered
4 tsp. Lemon juice
6 Tbsp. Honey divided
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Allspice
2 tsp. Arrowroot flour
3 tsp. Water
8 egg whites (room temperature)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat the inside of the ramekins with ghee (or butter).
  2. Dust the ramekins lightly with granulated maple sugar. To do this, place 1/4 tsp. on the inside side of ramekin and roll until coated around sides. Then place 1/4 tsp. of maple sugar at the bottom of each ramekin and gentle shake\roll around until the bottoms are covered.
  3. Place the pears and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse until puréed. If you use a ninja kitchen single serve mixer for this, your cooking time may have to be adjusted.
  4. In a pot on medium heat, add the puréed pears, 2 Tbsp. honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Stir for 1-2 minutes or lightly simmering and the honey is dissolved. Remove from heat.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together the arrowroot flour and water.
  6. Place the pot of puréed pears back on medium heat and stir in the arrowroot mixture. Stir for 1-2 minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Pour into a large bowl and place in refrigerator to cool (20-30 minutes or more).
  7. Then place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electronic mixture until soft peaks form. Slowly add the remaining 4 Tbsps. honey, beating until slightly glossy.
  8. Once the pear purée has cooled, stir in 1/3 of the egg whites and slowly combine. Repeat until all egg whites have been added. Do not over blend.
  9. Pour into ramekins until each 3/4 full and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden onto top. Serve immediately.

Skillet Chicken

This dish is really quick and easy to make and it’s super tasty. This is another family favorite that I make often. I also like to make it in batches and freeze it in single serving containers for delicious lunches. If you don’t like broccoli, make it with peas, that’s good too.
