This is so simple to make – the pears and onions are roasted in the oven quickly, to give you a healthy, naturally sweet side dish that is just a little bit different.


  • 3 pears
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 3 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Cut each pear vertically into quarters and use a teaspoon to remove the core and seeds.
  3. Peel the onion and cut into wedges.
  4. Place the pears to a baking pan or ovenproof dish.
  5. Add the onion wedges and rosemary.
  6. Pour over the olive oil, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar. Toss gently to ensure each pear and onion wedge is well coated.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until everything is soft and starting to caramelize.
  9. Serve hot, warm or room temperature.
