Curried Pear Crumble

Mildly sweet, a bit salty and aromatic curry….VERY light and satisfying. 

Those were the words I jotted down when I was writing up this recipe.  We weren’t especially hungry after dinner but wanted something  sweet.  I opened the pantry door and Ziggy Marley was staring out. That was it! The Ziggy Marley organic Coco’mon curry flavored coconut oil, I got from Native Sun!  Lots of times I find curry dishes with raisins so I knew I could create a dessert with this. I grabbed the oats and agave too and whipped this dish up in a minute.

If you have regular coconut oil, that will work too but if you can find the Ziggy Marley brand, I say go for it.  His website features this quote, “If I was given a choice and saw something that was genetically modified and saw something else from nature, I would choose the stuff that’s from nature. I don’t want to put anything into my body that’s not natural, that wasn’t created by nature, because we are a part of nature.” What’s not to love?!

My four year old daughter and I shared this crumble – she called it pear pie – and we both loved it.

Curry? In a dessert? Yes! Get a little crazy!

This recipe will appeal to both the folks that love curry and those that aren’t too fond of it because the amount of curry added is so slight and the curry in the coconut oil is not overpowering.  But if you are a curry lover I encourage you to add more curry powder!  There are many different curry blends and we tend to think of curries with savory dishes, but the one I chose had some nutmeg and ginger in it along with other spices such as black pepper and cumin – all these flavors come together and compliment the sweet pears and raisins.

What I love about natural desserts where you incorporate fruit is that they actually have vitamins and minerals that you won’t find when you rip open that prepackaged dessert. Those of you that follow me regularly probably note that I leave the long list of vitamins and minerals under the calories fat and carbs; why? Because that is what is important for your body to function!
