Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 4 servings
  • Prep 5 mins
  • Cook 10 mins

A simple, Greek-style breakfast that focuses on fruits and nuts but provides more energy than a toaster pastry.

You can also serve this simple-yet-sublime concoction for dessert.


1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
4 peppercorns
2 pears, peeled, cored and diced
2 cups Greek yogurt
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped


  1. Combine water, sugar, spices and pears in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pears are tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place ½ cup of yogurt into each of 4 serving bowls. Top with pears and a little cooking liquid. Top with walnuts.
