Amaranth Porridge with Ginger, Cinnamon, + Honey-Roasted Pear

April 16, 2018


Author Notes: Here you have these delicate, succulent pears with a zing of ginger, resting on top of a bed of nutty amaranth, and its juices pooled with a dollop of tangy and indulgent crème fraîche. Our rosemary granola always adds a nice aroma to a dish, and the olive oil? Oh, don't skimp. Get the fruitiest, highest quality extra virgin olive oil you can find. And of course, I can't go without a good sprinkling of flaky Maldon sea salt to balance the flavors. Enjoy.bumble & butter
