Pear and Grapefruit Crumble

Warm pears and juicy grapefruits are buried beneath a crisp oatmeal crumble topping. The pear crumble is nice on its own, but it is particularly nice when its paired with ruby red grapefruit supremes and yogurt.

  • 3 Bartlett Pears;  one of them grated the other two cut into slices
  • 1 Ruby Red Grapefruit
  • 3 Tbsp. Sugar
  • A pinch of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Vanilla Bean;  seeds only
  • 1 Tbsp. dried Cranberries
  • Serving suggestion:  Coconut Jogurt

CRUMBLE  Ingredients: 
  • 4 Tbsp. plain Flour 
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Vegan Butter;  chilled and cubed
  • A pinch of Ground Cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp. gluten-free Rolled Oats

  • Wash and clean the pears.  Cut the pears in quarters and core them. Cut two of the pears into thin slices and use a hand grater to process the third pear.  There is no need to peel the fruit when using Bartlett pears.
  • Also, peel the grapefruit with a sharp knife and then carefully cut the sections out between the skins.  When this is done set the sections aside in a small bowl and press the rest of the grapefruit juice out of the skin and into the same bowl.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Heat a small pan, add the sugar and 2 tablespoons of the grapefruit juice.  Swirl the pan to combine and then cook for about 5 minutes until it caramelizes and turns from clear to a slight golden orange.  Add the cinnamon, vanilla seeds and the grated pear and cook for 1–2 minutes.  Stir in the pear slices, then mix in the cranberries, and the rest of the grapefruit juice.  Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • To make the topping, place the flour, sugar, butter and cinnamon in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Then add the rolled oats and mix until everything is evenly distributed.
  • Scatter the crumble topping over the fruit and heat the dish again on the stovetop.  Once the pear mixture is bubbling, transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 12–14 minutes until the topping is a deep golden color.
  • Remove and serve warm with the grapefruit slivers and your favorite kind of plain vegan yogurt.  Enjoy!
