I wouldn’t have thought to combine pears and butternut squash, but that sounds fabulous! Love the additions of coriander and cloves as well.

Oh wow, that looks absolutely delicious! It looks like such a festive side-dish too, I’m thinking it would go amazing with my raw Christmas dinner. Perhaps i stand a chance at convincing some of my relatives to give my raw food dishes a try on Christmas. You blog is really inspirational, few other raw food blogs have such fine varieties of exquisite recipes. I love your sophisticated presentations as well, they give me lots of great ideas for the coming holidays, and this pear and squash puree will definitely make it to my table.

PS: Everything on your site is picture perfect, I wish all my raw dishes looked like yours! :)
