Open Peach & Pear Pie | Healthy, Hearty and Vegan
I wanted to experiment with the taste of different fruits, so I decided to work with Pears and Peaches, and it turned out a lot better than I expected.
This is a quick and easy recipe that requires minimal technique, minimal ingredients and provides amazing taste to your tastebuds.
Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
Total Time: 35 Minutes
Makes 2 Servings
1/2 Cup Buckwheat Flour
1/4 Cup Oat Flour
1/4 Cup Rolled Oats
1/2 Tbsp Flaxmeal + 2 Tbsp Water (1 Flax Egg)
1 Medjool Date
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
Pre-heat oven at 180°C.
Boil a pot of water on the stove.
Once water is boiling, add Cinnamon, then stir.
Slice Pear and Peach, then add to boiling water. After 5 minutes, set the stove to a low heat.
While the Peach and Pear continue to boil, prepare Flax Egg (combine and stir Flaxmeal and Water in a small bowl), then set aside.
Wash, then pit Medjool Date and soak in 1/4 Cup warm water for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes has elapsed, mash the medjool date and stir with the warm water to develop a syrup form. (Place in a small blender and blend if need be.)
Combine the Date Syrup and Rolled Oats in a separate bowl, then set aside for the meantime.
By now, the Peach and Pear should be well poached. Remove from the water and place on a laid out cloth.
In a clean bowl, mix Buckwheat Flour and Oat Flour.
Add Flax Egg and 1/4 cup of water to the flour mixture, and combine well. (Feel free to add more water if required).
Roll the dough into a bowl, then flatten into a flat, circular-structure using a rolling pin.
Place the sliced Peach and Pear, as well as the Rolled Oats mix on the flattened dough, leaving at least 2-3 inches along the edges.
Once they have been placed, fold the outer edges of the dough, then press inwards towards the toppings.
Place the uncooked open pie on a lined baking tray, then place in the oven for 20 minutes at 200°C - 220°C.
Once the cooking time has elapsed, allow the pie to cool on the bench top for a few minutes, then add any desired toppings.
