How to make Low-Fat Stilton Pears (v)

Four white quarter plates placed together to complete a circle with halved pears topped with Stilton cheese and Greek yoghurt on a bed of gem lettuce

Rosemary demonstrates how to make this starter or light lunch.

This recipe sounds like a contradition as we all know that Stilton is a high-fat cheese but in this really tasty starter or light lunch recipe, the combination of sweet ripe pears, low-fat soft cheese, Greek yogurt mixed with a little Stilton, is surprising delicious.

Serves 4
Per serving: 175 kcal/5g fat
Preparation time 15 minutes


Ingredients

4 ripe Conference pears
4fl oz cider or apple juice or use juice of 2 lemons
50g Stilton cheese
50g low-fat soft cheese
1 tbsp 0% fat Greek yogurt
1 Little Gem lettuce


Method

  1. Peel the pears and slice in half lengthways, then carefully remove the core with the tip of a teaspoon. Dip the pears in the cider/apple or lemon juice to prevent them from discolouring, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the Stilton, low-fat soft cheese and the yogurt together in a small bowl until fairly smooth.
  3. Now fill the cavities in each of the pear halves with a teaspoon of the cheese mixture and place them on lettuce leaves on serving plates.
  4. Keep chilled until ready to serve. Serve with a dessert knife and fork.
