Poached pear
• 1 ½ cup Lotus Organic Rapadura Sugar

In a medium-sized pot, bring water to the boil, then add rice. On medium heat, stir the rice until the water has evaporated. Add salt and vanilla powder, then slowly pour the coconut milk, ½ a cup at a time. Wait till the mixture thickens, then add the rice syrup.

Place 2 cups of cold water and the rest of the ingredients into a pot, bring the water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add pears and cook for 20 minutes or until pears are tender.

Serve the poached pears warm on top of the coconut rice pudding.
