Roasted Pears with Brie & Pistachios
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch-square (or similar-size) metal baking pan with cooking spray.Advertisement
Whisk mustard, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Cut pears in half lengthwise, hollow out the core and slice a small piece off the other side so they will lie flat when served. Brush all over with the mustard glaze and place cored-side down in the prepared pan.
Bake the pears for 30 minutes, basting halfway through with the glaze. Gently turn them over, baste again and place a piece of Brie in the hollow of each pear. Bake until the pears are tender and the Brie is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle each pear half with 1 teaspoon pistachios.
Tip: To toast seeds and chopped, small or sliced nuts cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
