Sautéed Pears & Plums
It’s the last ditch recipe for those delicious summer plums! Sauteing the fruit really brings out their sweetness.
- 1 firm red pear, cored and thinly sliced
- 2 plums, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 3 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for cooking
- 2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 6-8 cups arugula
- Generous pinch of sea salt
- Black pepper
Heat a large pan over med-low heat. Add 1-tablespoon olive oil. Sauté the pears for 2- 3 minutes per side, until soft and brown around the edges. Set aside. Repeat with the plums.
Meanwhile, toast seeds in a dry skillet over med-low heat. Stir to prevent burning (about 3-5 minutes).
In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar and garlic until emulsified. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Toss arugula with the dressing. Top with the seeds and fruit. Season to taste.
