Place all ingredients but pears in a pot large enough to fit 8 pear halves and bring it to a boil. Let simmer for 5 minutes, while you prepare the pears.
Halve pears and remove skins and pits.
Add pears to the pot cover and cook for 20-25 minutes turning them around every 5 minutes so they get cooked evenly.
Remove the pears from the pan and cook the liquid for another 10-15 minutes, to reduce it to a desired consistency.
Serve with vanilla yogurt, reduced sauce (or vegan vanilla yogurt) and some chopped nuts.
